Rachel Reupke

Rachel Reupke is an artist working primarily with the moving image. Her videos have been presented in galleries and museums internationally, including exhibitions and screenings at Tate Modern, ICA, Centre Pompidou, Bonner Kunstverein, Wattis Institute and Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing.

Her works reveal a fascination with the aesthetic and political stakes of minor affects, such as frustration, annoyance and inertia. From the formal expression of a grievance in Letter of Complaint (2015), to the complexities of a domestic flat share in 10 Seconds of Greater (2011), agency is often the central motif in an anti-narrative where the subject struggles to assert their will. More recently, Questionnaire (2021), used the format of a diagnostic questionnaire to explore ideas of dysfunction and normativity within everyday life.
