Rebecca Delange utilises sculpture and photography to investigate and problematise the mutability and entanglement of form, material and meaning.
Delange seeks to articulate an object/material language that looks at disrupting traditional categories of meaning though strategies of collage, assemblage and spatial arrangement applied to sourced and repurposed materials and objects—and how this can potentially action a type of semiotic and phenomenological slippage evoking unseen narratives and new knowledge for the viewer in the material outcomes of the work.
Her practice looks at the poetic—things known and felt yet evading direct visual perception and representation, unseen and unspoken experiences—and how can these things can be made manifest in the material.
