Exhibitions Sex Lives of Animals Without Backbones by Rachel Fein-Smolinski
May 22-June 9, 2019 Project Space Two
Rachel Fein-Smolinski will user her time in the Project Space to continue work on her project Sex Lives of Animals Without Backbones. This work is focused on courage and pain through the metaphor of spinelessness. She will use the Project Space to continue working with alternative materials, archival images, resin, grouted ceramic tiles, cotton, suture threads, and x-ray viewing lights, to construct new images and work on a book structured as a series of medical textbooks.
Rachel Fein-Smolinski is an installation artist based in Syracuse, NY. She holds a B.F.A. in Studio Art from San Francisco Art Institute and an M.F.A. in Art Photography from Syracuse University, where she is currently a part-time faculty member. Her work uses sci-fi to deal with neurosis and intellectualism.
Support for this exhibition came from Max and Marian Farash Foundation, Joy of Giving Something, and the New York State Council on the Arts Visual Arts program.
