RACHEL DE JOODE
A central interest of Rachel de Joode is the interplay between the physical and virtual world, exploring the relationship between the three-dimensional object and its two-dimensional representation.
Rachel de Joode is a Dutch-born, Berlin-based multi-media artist. She mixes mediums, particularly those of photography, sculpture and most recently, painting. Her work bounces between the physical and the virtual, exploring the relationship between the three-dimensional object and its two dimensional-representation.

Rachel de Joode, the Berlin-based multimedia artist talks about her new works on show at London’s ANNKA KULTYS GALLERY, interviewed by Olivia Gavoyannis. De Joode says that when she views art in person, she sometimes moves closer out of reflex. “Phones are almost a prosthetic for the way we look at art… we now have to move around [artwork] in order to activate the kinds of zooming in and out we could easily accomplish on a screen,” she says. →
