Rachael Woodson is an American visual artist based in Paris. Her work considers the photographic medium in a larger, interdisciplinary context and engages methods that favor actions and forms which reuse and reactivate images from the archive, that focus on process as opposed to finality and that allow for a fluidity between different artistic gestures.
Her work has been exhibited in museums and art spaces in France, the United States and Japan, including Le Centquatre, Paris (Circulation(s) 2018), ALMA espace d’art, Paris (Photoactivity, 2018), Tsukuba Museum of Art, Japan, (In Between, 2017), Mains d’Œuvres, Saint-Ouen (Regarde-moi ça, 2017), La Nuit Blanche Off, Paris (VAULTED, 2016), Galerie Magasin de Jouets, Arles (4x6 NON TITLE EVENT, 2016), Galerie Samantha Sellem, Paris (Regards Croisés, 2012) and Visual Arts Gallery, New York (Mentors, 2006, Isthmus, 2007).
