LONDON.- This autumn, the Serpentine presents Palisades, the first solo show in London by Rachel Rose, American artist and winner of the 2015 Frieze Artist Award. The exhibition directly responds to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery with a unique site-specific installation. Interweaving two of her most recent videos – A Minute Ago (2014) and Palisades in Palisades (2014) – Rose creates an immersive environment through movement, sound and colour.

A Minute Ago begins with a video of a sudden and apocalyptic-like hailstorm in Siberia, over which Rose layers a sound recording of Pink Floyd’s Echoes playing to an empty amphitheatre in Pompeii. This scene is fused with Rose’s own footage of architect Philip Johnson’s Glass House, incorporating a tour led by the architect himself (rotoscoped in from an old VHS).

In Palisades in Palisades Rose uses a remote control lens and a precise trompe-l'œil editing technique to link a girl standing on the banks of the Hudson River at the Palisades Interstate Park in New York, to different moments in the landscape’s history, including the memory of the site’s involvement in the American Revolutionary War.

Through the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated events, Rose’s work presents humanity’s shared current anxieties and their multi-layered interconnectivity: our changing relationship to the natural world, the advance of technology, catastrophes, our own mortality and the impact of history.

Julia Peyton-Jones, Director, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director, Serpentine Galleries, said: “The Serpentine Sackler Gallery space, with its unique history, architecture and location, serves as a perfect setting for Rose’s beautifully poetic, multilayered works. Her videos urgently probe into some of the world’s most current and pressing concerns, as she tackles the issue of humanity’s changing relationship to the natural world and our growing use of technology.”

The autumn season at the Serpentine includes the concurrent exhibition of artist, activist, poet and writer Jimmie Durham at the Serpentine Gallery. Through opposite techniques and materials, both artists draw on subjectivity and personal history, cultural context and ecology to weave seemingly disparate narratives into their work.

Rachel Rose was born in 1986, and currently lives and works in New York. Recent exhibitions include Visitors, Governor's Island, New York (2015); Cloud Cover, CCS Bard College, Hessel Museum, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York (2015); The Importance of Being a (Moving) Image, National Gallery, Prague (2015); The Great Acceleration, Taipei Biennial, Taipei (2014); Phantom Limbs, Pilar Corrias, London (2014); A Minute Ago, High Art, Paris (2014); Chance Motives, Sculpture Center, New York (2013); Geographies of Contamination, David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2013); and Uncanny Valleys, Electronic Arts Intermix, New York (2013).

Forthcoming solo exhibitions are scheduled for The Whitney Museum of American Art (2015); Castello di Rivoli (2015); and The Aspen Art Museum, Aspen (2016). As the winner of the 2015 Frieze Art Award, Rose is exhibiting at London’s Frieze Art Fair 2015.
