Rachel Rampleman Exhibitions and Events in February - March
Video stills from my new 30-channel video installation Pop Art Portraits, premiering March 1st at
SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW
The Sun That Never Sets (Vanessa Albury + Rachel Rampleman) teams up with Lynn Maliszewski to present I See Myself in Your Eyes, a show consisting of video and related works in drawing, painting, photography and sculpture. The exhibitionincorporates both emerging and established artists to link themes and artistic devices that reappear across generations.
The works in I See Myself in Your Eyes draw upon the SPRING/BREAK Art Show theme of with strategic reinterpretations and appropriations of images and ideas. We also follow the impact and reformation of related ideas over 50 years of art making. Duplication and prismatic subjectivity—accompanied by the tension of navigating uncertain terrain—emerge as characteristics traceable throughout video art discourse. I See Myself in Your Eyes highlights the relationship of video to other art mediums from the 1960s to today.
The Sun That Never Sets regularly works with Peter Clough, Juliet Jacobson, Jeremy Olson, Vanessa Albury and Rachel Rampleman. In this incarnation, we are pleased to also present works by Joan Jonas, Sue de Beer, Aldo Tambellini and Peer Bode.
Thu. 24 March = Opening Sun. 27 March = Artist talk + Book launch "Baby's on Fire"
Open: 24/25/26/27 March & 02/03 February 2016 (14h - 19h) + By appointment.

De werken van de New Yorkse Rachel Rampleman gaan over de 'uitwassen' van onze populaire cultuur, waarbij zij zich vooral focust op de rol van vrouwen. Haar video's draaien bijvoorbeeld rond fancultuur, tribute bands en de vroegere obsessie van haar zusje voor Bret Michaels (de frontman van Poison) etcetera. Nu eens presenteert ze haar werk als documentaire, dan weer als videoclip, afhankelijk van het thema dat ze behandelt. Voor haar solo in TTTT zal ze de ruimte veranderen in een all-over installatie die in het verlengde van haar videowerken ligt. De ruimte wordt zo een transformatie naar de hallucinerende wereld van Rachel Rampleman.
Tevens zal op 27e februari, tijdens de Gent Matinees, haar Europese boek presentatie "Baby's on Fire" plaatsvinden in TTTT. Ook zal de artist talk zal worden bijgestaan door Joel Brendan (www.thelessyousee.com) en de CEPA Directuer David Mitchell (www.david-mitchell.com)
The CHENNAI PHOTO BIENNALE, a non profit initiative organised by the Goethe-Institut Chennai and Travelling Lens, is pleased to present AlterVision. In such a visually-saturated surveillance society where everyone and no-one is being watched, AlterVision explores the nature of images whether staged, appropriated or made in the real world, and how they inform us of our experience of reality. The body of works presented in this exhibition engages with issues surrounding contemporary culture, specifically focusing on identity and privacy.
Participating Artists: Rachel Rampleman, Ronny Sen, Maximus Clarke, Harsha Biswajit
