Visual artist / Multi-sensory Installations
Living and working in Reykjavík, Rakel has a BA degree from the Iceland Academy of the Arts (2008) and has a background in philosophy from the University of Iceland. Her works exude mysticism, the ritualistic, the sensual and the psychic. In her installations she aims to recreate an atmosphere, which often relates to the instruments of the ancient rituals, as for instance in her use of repetition in video and sound. Her installations stimulate sight, sound and vision and are better described as experiences situated on boarders of the visible/ invisible, conscious/subconscious and the sensual/spiritual.
