Authors name as printed in book: Rachel Wolfe
The photographs in Bound by Water are exposures made from the Shikoku and Honshu islands and arranged in an interpretation of the constructed stories socially shared about Japan, proliferated through time, as memory.
Rachel Indergaard sources material, linguistic, and anthropological elements from photographic and image technologies for viewer experience. Representation of water serves as a common motif throughout the images, texts, and spacial arrangements Indergaard creates. Her work considers the production and reproduction of historical narratives and the opportunity attending to human sense encounters with materials have in creating new narratives. Indergaard completed a MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. She is a recipient of the Emerson Woeffler Scholarship, 2014, and full scholarship for social psychology study at Ehime University in Japan, 2012. Her work has been published, exhibited, and collected in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., U.K., Brazil, Belgium, Italy, and Japan.
