Lake Valley is an eight-minute video work by American artist Rachel Rose. She creates an intricately woven narrative that is both familiar and disorienting. As with much of Rose’s work, Lake Valley derives from a central question or feeling: the intrinsic sense of loneliness that exists between childhood and adulthood. The work is an exploration of our relationship to ourselves as well as the natural landscape. The work is layered, textural, and rich, created from thousands of images found in the history of children’s literature, fused and recontextualized with hand-drawn animation. As we immerse ourselves into this modern dream world, we seek to find connections and meaning where nothing is what it seems.
Rachel Rose has shown her work extensively around the globe, recent solo exhibitions include Lafayette Anticipations, Paris (2020); Fridericianum, Kassel (2019); Fondation Luma, Arles (2019); Fondazione Sandretto, Turin (2018); Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia (2018); Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz (2017); Museu Serralves, Porto (2016); The Aspen Art Museum, Aspen (2016); The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2016); The Serpentine Galleries, London (2015) and inclusion recently in the 57th Venice Biennale (2017) and the 32nd São Paulo Biennial (2016). She is the recipient of the Future Fields Award and the Frieze Artist Award.
