Rachel Rose. Wil-O-Wisp

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

  • 02.11.2018. - 20.01.2019

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will present the European premier of Rachel Rose’s video installation Wil-O-Wisp, (2018). Produced in collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the work is result of the inaugural Future Fields Commission in Time-Based Media, a commissioning program designed for the acquisition of new work in the field of time-based media. Through her videos, Rachel Rose investigates our images-saturated environment and the various representation of history. In this work, the artist turns her attention to a tumultuous historical moment – England in the late 1500s – and the persecution of women accused of witchcraft.
