Whether she is dancing provocatively around a tree in the New Hampshire woods or covering her body in countless layers of nude-colored Spanx (in a piece aptly titled Absolute Control), I always find Beaudoin’s work daring, clever, funny, and on the mark.
Two of my other favorite pieces by Rachelle are Way to Go! and Kill Me Now Abs!, which you can watch below. Beaudoin has no hesitation about using her own body in her work in order to make a point, a fact that prompted one male college student at the opening to say, “This girl is like that girl, you know the girl from the show Girls.”
You can check out all of Rachelle’s work on her website. Let’s Work it Out is at the Carroll House Gallery in Keene, New Hampshire, through February 22, 2014. A special thanks to Rachelle for the custom lashes!
