About

American b. 1986 - Rachel Mica Weiss is a sculptor and installation artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Her abstract sculptures and installations interrogate the relationship between architecture, textiles, and the body. Inspired by weaving’s relationship to architecture and its historical use as a means to divide, control, and gender space, Weiss uses textiles' innate characteristics—and processes she's developed from weaving—to harness three-dimensional space. By interrupting natural passageways or highlighting existing architectural structures, she draws attention to the constraints within our physical and psychological spaces, and in so doing, shifts them. Weiss earned a BA in psychology from Oberlin College, an MFA in sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute, and is a 2011 recipient of the San Francisco Foundation Murphy and Cadogan Fellowship. Solo exhibition venues include Lux Art Institute, LMAK Gallery, Montserrat College of Art, Fridman Gallery, NY, and the San Francisco Arts Commission. Weiss has been commissioned to create installations for the US Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan; Airbnb, Seattle, WA; Brookfield’s One Allen Center, Houston, TX; 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge and The Ashland, Brooklyn, NY, among others.
