Sarada Rauch is a hybrid media artist, poet and musician based in Brooklyn. Through reenactment, the work collapses the personal and mediated experience to examine the construction of histories and institutional narratives. Taking her own private thoughts and contemporary events as subject matter, she explores how information is presented in relation to discourses of the other and othering. The work is informed by her experience navigating between differing cultures in her background as a perpetual other.
Sarada received her MFA from Hunter College and has exhibited internationally in spaces such as The Drawing Center, New York; Hessel Museum of Art, Hudson; RH+ Gallery, Istanbul; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; Central St. Martins, London; La Conservera Center of Contemporary Art, Cueti; Demarco Art House, Edinburgh; and the RISD Museum, Providence. Artist residencies she has participated in include Open Sessions at the Drawing Center, New York; The LMCC Swing Space, New York; Center for Book Arts Workspace Residency, New York; Latitude 53, Edmonton; and she received the BBK Saxony Fellowship in Leipzig. Sarada was one of the directors of Heliopolis Gallery in Brooklyn, and is a co-creator of the art podcast called Around About.
