Rachel Khedoori


Australian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Rachel Khedoori is currently presenting a group of new sculptures with Hauser & Wirth in Zurich that continues the artist’s examination of physical and metal space. Khedoori is able to achieve complex environments through the interlacing of architecture, sculpture and film. The combination of these elements allows the artist to experiment with physical and remembered space, provoking both subtly disturbing and calming sensations. For her recent exhibition, she returned to the materials of foam, plaster, wood and wax, contrasting from earlier works through the use of the model rather than a physical walk-though space. The artist first made a name for herself in a New York debut exhibition at David Zwirner with her twin sister and now acclaimed artist Toba Khedoori. Since that exhibition, Rachel Khedoori has gone on to present several international exhibitions, including works with Villa Arson in Nice, France (2004), and a self-titled exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel (2001). Khedoori completed her BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute (1988) and her MFA from the University of California at Los Angeles (1994).
