Rachel Rose

Goodnight Moon

SITE SANTA FE presents Goodnight Moon, a solo exhibition by artist Rachel Rose featuring new and recent sculpture, installation, and video, as well as notable historical loans from Yale Center for British Art.

Goodnight Moon includes the premier of The Last Day (2023), a short video comprising thousands of medium format, still life photographs shot in her children’s bedroom. The work is structured in seven days with each day’s composition symbolizing a different epoch in the history of the earth, illustrating how the history of earth’s landscape is embedded in the development of imagination.

Enclosure (2019), a film and installation originally co-commissioned by LUMA Foundation and Park Avenue Armory, addresses the catastrophic psycho-social and ecological disturbances triggered by the advent of capitalism and industrialization in seventeenth-century agrarian England. Like all of Rose’s projects, a period of rigorous research guided the direction of this carefully crafted narrative, resulting in a powerful visual experience and gripping story. Several sculptures, known as Loops (2022–ongoing), as well as a selection of 19th-century drawings and paintings on loan from the Yale Center of British Art accompany the video.

Lastly, Rose presents a new series of photographs titled Groundhog Day (2023), inspired by the eponymous 1993 comedy directed by Harold Ramis and starring Bill Murray. Rose’s collection of 24 photographs taken on February 2, 2023, this year’s actual Groundhog Day, elongate fleeting seconds within the banal and minute details of one day to uncover deeper meaning in the everyday. The installation of these photographs mirrors the day imaged within The Last Day.
