Rachel Peachey

I currently live and work in the Blue Mountains, Australia, often in collaboration with my partner and our two young children.

My practice focuses on human / environment relationships from a range of perspectives. I have an ongoing interest in the different ways people inhabit and move through space and often look at how these challenges are navigated individually and in groups. I am also interested in the way humans project their emotions and ideas onto particular landscapes and non human entities.

I work with a variety of mediums including photography, sculpture, video, sound, textiles and found objects. I travel regularly for residencies and site specific installations and often use a process that requires field research in particular landscapes over time.

My most recent projects were a residency at Ne-Na Contemporary Art Space in Chiang Mai, Thailand where we were researching cultural differences in family dynamics and a residency at the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik in Berlin, Germany where we explored urban park design and risk taking.
