Haydens presents hold said, a solo exhibition by Rachel Schenberg, with an accompanying essay by Ash Kilmartin
Rachel Schenberg’s practice engages in diverse projects with a focus on context-specific outputs. She works to understand meaning-making through layers of association, by creating systems which measure and map small transactions within the day-to-day and articulate a way of thinking that is relational. She is interested in associative logic, and the overall principles of equivalence: how objects, ideas and places can be equated to another. Recently she has been researching portable works made for the scale of the hand to ask questions of how this location, which we carry with us, might be a site for making-meaning. hold said marks the completion of her Masters of Fine Art candidature at Monash University.
Rachel Schenberg (b. 1992, UK) lives and works in Melbourne and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Hons. (First Class) in 2015 at Monash University. Throughout her MFA candidature she also studied at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, and The Cheapest University in Paris.
