Rachel Baasch was born in Durban, South Africa. She completed her Bachelors (2009), Masters (2012) in Fine Art (with distinction) specialising in sculpture and installation. Rachel’s interests are both practically and theoretically driven. Her previous installations such as Precaution Remains (2009) and The Eyes of the Wall and Other Short Stories (2012), interrogate the relationship between physical and psychological borders and boundaries in a socio-political context. Her work is concerned with notions of seeing and blindness in relation to physical and psychological walls and markers of division which arguably shape and influence the way that one perceives the internal self and that which is external to the self within a specific and meaningful place. She has published in De Arte and Image and Text journals. Her MFA supervisors were Prof Ruth Simbao (theory) and Prof Maureen de Jager (practice).
