Clare Rae engages photography, stop motion animation and performance to navigate and defy the limitations of the everyday environments she inhabits. Her works explore tension, portraying situations that offer alternative spatial and psychological interactions between the artist and the possibilities that are held in her surrounds. Based in Melbourne, Rae’s recent solo exhibitions such as Light Weight at Beam Contemporary in 2011 and Climbing the Walls and Other Actions in 2009 at the Centre for Contemporary Photography have attracted critical acclaim from reviewers and audiences alike. In 2009 Rae was the recipient of the prestigious CCP/Colour Factory Award and in 2011 was awarded a New Work Grant by the Australia Council for the Arts.
