Rachael Haynes’ art practice explores the limits of language and subjectivity, and re-examines art history and philosophy in relation to gender politics. In her drawing installations and performative video works, Haynes performs a playful mixing of language codes and systems – drawn from abstraction, conceptual art, pop music, modernist literature and philosophical traditions – and enacts a gendered ‘redrawing’ of these texts. Studio Remix is an ongoing and evolving drawing installation that is revised and adapted for specific exhibition contexts, weaving the logic of the studio into the gallery. In each remix, provisional relationships are created between drawings completed over the last five years, exploring subtle inter-textual connections and optical resonances.
