Rachel Harrison
Bird Watching

Opening – 26 APR 2024, 6-9 pm

Konrad Fischer Galerie is proud to announce Rachel Harrison’s first exhibition with the gallery, opening on occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin on April 26–28, 2024.

Titled ‚Bird Watching‘, the exhibition will present six new sculptures and a series of recent photographs by the artist.

Rachel Harrison is well-known for her sculptures and installations with various artistic references and stylistic means. In a critical and humorous fashion, Harrison’s work often combines handmade forms with found objects or photographs, bringing art history, politics, and pop culture into dialogue with one another.

„Harrison lays bare the inapparent correspondence that communes between these estranged cultural forms — one is just as likely to find a clown in a museum as you might a masterpiece in a carnival, so to speak.“
