Rachel and Toba Khedoori

The twin sisters Khedoori (Left Toba, right Rachel) 

Rachel Khedoori was born in Sydney in 1964; she was married with the artist Jason Rhoades (1965-2006). She has been working in Los Angeles since 1990. Her work is an examination of her environment and the spaces she inhabits both physically and mentally. Rachel Khedoori gained international recognition with her first comprehensive solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel and Kunstverein Braunschweig, 2001, which also established her with a wider audience

The key strategy of Rachel Khedoori’s art is her practice of interlacing and interlinking. She often weaves together architecture, sculpture and film to create highly complex interpretations of time and space. Khedoori’s works present real, actual spaces that are combined with remembered or imagined ones, producing situations of disturbing, claustrophobic beauty. By interlinking reconstructed, mirrored, filmed and re-filmed spaces, she creates works that continually challenge the viewer’s perceptions.

Her biennial piece is a sculpture: Butter Cave  

Toba Khedoori (born in Sydney in 1964) is a visionary minimalist, an artist who depicts minimalism's three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. She draws on enormous sheets of paper that have the effect of immense miniatures, or mirages, shimmering in and out of sight: you do a lot of blinking and eye rubbing around her work. Her subjects are man-made places and things: doors, rooms, furniture and buildings; all of them strikingly devoid of any sign of life.

In the biennial she has made a huge drawing with an image of an open fireplace: White Fireplace
