Influenced by minimalist movement of the 1960s and 70s, classical architecture, spiritualism and pop-culture, Rothschild has developed an international reputation for work that is both striking and spare.

Sharp geometric forms melt into gelatinous chaos, physical laws seem suspended and perception loses all reliability.

Though stripped of excess, these abstract arrangements still draw the mind into spaces where power, ritual, the architectural and the infinite intersect.

The Irish-born and London-based artist employs a wide variety of materials to accomplish her astutely wrought effects, including leather, paper, Plexiglas, jesmonite, steel and wood. Freed from their conventional use in earlier artistic traditions, the meaning inherent in these materials is similarly liberated.

The first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in Australia ahead of her appearance at next year’s Venice Biennale, this major exhibition will see Rothschild taking over the entirety of ACCA, presenting new and existing work that each raise questions around the social spaces we share – from playgrounds to amphitheatres to classical ruins.
