Rachelle Dang combines a practice based in sculpture and installation with research into Pacific colonial legacies. Her work examines historical forms and complex environmental connections between places, people, and things. She is currently working on a series of sculptures that resemble talismanic ancestral portraits in ceramic and synthetic materials. The forms appear woven or ruptured, with a visible substructure.
