Object Label:
Rachel Foullon’s (b. 1978, American) sculpture and installations are composed of materials and objects associated with manual and domestic labor. Washboard (2012) was included in Foullon’s 2012 exhibition Braided Sun at the University at Albany Art Museum that demonstrated her engagement with twentieth-century vernacular and agrarian life and its relationship to shifting cultural contexts. Utilizing found objects such as rope, washboard, and fabric, the work addresses the meaning and purpose of functionality and nods to the modern and postmodern history of shaped-canvas painting and Rauschenberg’s Combine.
