A Minute Ago, 2014

Everything and More, 2015
18 OCT - 13 NOV 2016

‘Contemporary Projects: Rachel Rose’ presents two recent works by the New York-based artist, that will be presented to the public in two different moments. In September will be exhibited A Minute Ago, 2014 (HD video, 8’43”). A Minute Ago collages footage of an abrupt apocalyptic storm in Siberia with the artist’s own footage of Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House. Relating two apparently unconnected events, Rose’s work unfolds with a multi-layered interconnection of time, space, and ecology. 
The second work will be exhibited in October. Everything and More, 2015 (video HD, 10’31”) originates in the experience of an astronaut’s body in outer space, blending footage of research in a four-story-deep pool with robots simulating the daily tasks of astronauts in space, and Rose’s abstract representations of models of physical complexity and the infinite.

Rachel Rose lives and works in New York. She was the recipient of the 2014 Illy Prize. Recent solo and group exhibitions and screenings include the São Paulo Biennial; ‘Everything and More’, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2015); ‘Palisades’, Serpentine Galleries, London (2015); ‘Cloud Cover’, CCS Hessel Museum, New York (2015); ‘The Importance of Being a (Moving) Image’, National Gallery, Prague (2015); Taipei Biennial, ‘The Great Acceleration’, Taipei (2014); ‘Phantom Limbs’, Pilar Corrias, London (2014); ‘Geographies of Contamination’, David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2014) and Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York (2014).

‘Contemporary Projects: Rachel Rose’ is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and is curated by João Ribas, Deputy Director and Senior Curator of the Museum assisted by curator Filipa Loureiro.
