A multitude of superimposed everyday objects, pictograms and other symbols from worldwide (sub)cultures intertwine in Rachel Daniël's installations, which seem to be based on an apparent disorder that deliberately obscures our reading of her work. These heterogeneous associations sometimes show a kind of humor - absurdity even - but often come across as menacing and seem to contain a latent violence.

 

As a multidisciplinary artist, she combines techniques and sources of inspiration to construct a critical mechanism that makes use of a unique visual language. Her installations are often accompanied by coexisting soundscapes that act as emulsifiers that provoke a dialogue between different elements within the installations. Its main materials are steel, construction fences and stained glass, pronounced materials that contain and exhibit a compelling force.
