Rachael House is an artist who makes events and objects. She is also co-director of artist run Space Station Sixty-Five.
Rachael’s Pet-Tastic art events, fancy dress picnics for dogs, started in Peckham and have since taken place in Norway, Lewisham, The De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill and most recently in Blackpool, where the documentation of Blackpool Pet-Tastic is in Grundy Art Gallery’s permanent collection.
Concerns in Rachael’s work include the use of public space, extending an invitation to participate and collective joy.
Before making work that brings people together in public space, Rachael made self-published comics, which brought people together via international postal services and soaped stamps.
