Work by Rachel Schenberg. Courtesy: the artist and Sarah Scout Presents, Melbourne.
Rachel Schenberg is a multi-disciplinary artist working across sculpture, video and writing, and whose practice addresses questions of how we make meaning through relation. Her works use slow accumulation of material from the day-to-day, to bring focus to associations of small transactions and exchanges over multiple timeframes. She is interested in associative logic and principles of equivalence: how an object, idea or place can be equated to another.
The suite of works in May-old hold draw from Schenberg’s recent practice, looking at portable works made for the scale of the hand, to ask questions of how this location, which we carry with us, can be a site for making meaning. May-old hold is the second iteration of her exhibition, hold said, presented at Hayden’s Gallery in May 2019.
Exhibition opens: 5:30–7:30pm Thursday 14 November 2019
