ALEXIS V. RAUSCH - ARTIST  b. 1995 (SHE/HER/HERS)

Living between the realms of foreign and familiar, my work explores physical manifestations of borrowed memory and our relationship (and often desensitization towards) to contemporary perpetuations of violence. By creating visual and tactile tension between what attracts and repulses the viewer, I use religious iconography, digital-age ritualism, and the deterioration of the body to explore how we choose to neglect or memorialize these moments.
