Now on shelves, Rachel Harrison: Sitting in a Room documents the artist's eponymous 2022–2023 presentation at the Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo, which spanned media including sculpture, drawing, photography, and painting.
This richly-illustrated catalogue reproduces the artist's distinctive approach to the exhibition. Harrison configured five of the museum's galleries as discrete rooms, exploring setting in its various guises. From Sculpture Court and Town Square to Gym, Living Room, and Cabinet, Sitting in a Room placed the viewer in contexts both intimate and public. Original texts by Negar Azimi, Anne Dressen, Lars Bang Larsen, and Solveig Øvstebø expand on the conceptual trajectories proposed by the exhibition.
