As a dedicated multi-disciplinary artist, Rachael Kozak has pushed the borders of expression internationally from the stage to the canvas. Her notable audio offerings, digital art and multiple video appearances have served as the conduit to over 20 years of work under the guise of her alter ego known worldwide as Hecate. Having had exhibitions in Vienna and Berlin in recent years, she is now presenting her Fine Art in Finland for the first time.
Being based in Kuopio for over two years, she has gone back to her roots by channelling her love of dark and decadent subject matter into the next of her mediums. Ritualistic and raw in its primitive form, ceramics have provided Rachael with an intersection which bridges her concepts from two dimensional transmissions to her love for all things physical. In this collection which accompanies Sasu Kerman ́s “Iron Man of the North” installation, she reminds us of the masks of virtue and vanity which lay ever so close to the impending undertaking which stands as the ultimate protagonist to all living beings. The Shaman. The Courtesan. The Phantom. Death. All brought to life under her focussed eye and hand, showing to the public for the first time here at Galleria Bremer.
This exhibition which runs for two months, will also feature an entire room presenting 20 large scale paintings of Sasu Kerman which pull from the inspiration of Science Fiction. The second room which serves as an video installation of Sasu´s brilliant documentary piece, Iron Man of the North, is also the room in which Rachael´s four new ceramic sculptures are to be found.
