The pleasure of your company is requested at The Bride Laid Bare, an exhibition of new work by Rachel Harmeyer. To create this series, the artist dissected a number of bridal gowns, literally and figuratively anatomizing them. From their constituent elements, by using a combination of drawing, embroidery, and bricolage techniques, Harmeyer has transformed these raw materials into anatomical specimens which explore the objectified female body and its meaning in the wedding ritual.
Rachel Harmeyer is a visual artist who works in a variety of media, from painting and drawing to collage, bricolage, and surface embroidery. Her current work transforms anatomical interiors into exterior adornment and employs processes and materials traditionally used in female-centered domestic craft to question the way the female body has been fetishized both in fashion and medical illustration.
This event is part of FrenetiCore’s Artist Board Series. The Artist Board was created to give local artists a platform for presenting exciting new work while broadening the scope and impact of programming at Frenetic Theater.
