Iowa Artists 2020: Rachel Cox Opens

10/16/2020

OCTOBER 16, 2020 – JANUARY 3, 2021
BLANK ONE GALLERY

Iowa Artist 2020 will feature selections from photographer Rachel Cox’s “Mors Scena” series. After participating in funeral arrangements for family members, Cox became interested in the décor of funeral homes, and how the colors, lighting, and formal elements of these staged environments manifest within the grieving process. The artist conducted research at small, independently owned funeral homes to not only capture their unique, uncanny spaces, but also delve into how notions of class, culture, and social expectation all play in role in how such places come to look and feel. The resulting photos are part documentary, part formal exploration, and part arranged fiction, all working together to capture the surreal uncertainty and a concrete sense of loss often present after a death in contemporary America.
