Rachel Mica Weiss (b. 1986) is a Brooklyn-based installation artist and sculptor. Her sculptural practice incorporates stone, cast forms, and wood constructions, as well as textile languages to generate works embedded with gravity and tension. Materials are often manipulated in unlikely ways, blurring connotations of formal and material characteristics. Her large-scale installations and Woven Screens are rooted in the craft of weaving, its technical processes, historical uses, and relationships to architecture. Using an environment’s unique architectural elements as her framework, her interventions nod to textiles’ historical use as a means to divide and control space, drawing attention to constraints within both physical and psychological spaces.
