Rachel Higgins is a Brooklyn-based artist originally from Alabama and an MFA candidate in combined media at Hunter College. Her sculpture uses the languages of commercial architecture, domestic decor, and youth DIY culture to struggle with the exclusivity and insularity within artist and activist communities. Exploring sentimental and nostalgic connections to everyday objects and social spaces, her constructions embrace a kind of pathetic charm. Discouragement becomes inspiration for unsustainable structures--precarious, yet happy in their temporary existence.
