Inês Rebelo (b. 1981 in Lisbon, Portugal) lives and works in London, UK. An astronomical expedition lies at the heart of Rebelo’s practice. Much of her work’s experiential status necessitates the relationship between the inside world of earth and outside world of space, between the earthly ‘now’ and the cosmological ‘then’, provoking an intrinsic advancement towards her artistic access to the realm of cosmos.
Rebelo’s latest works bring to light the concept of the other. The political dynamics of the encounter between different communities and cultures, as described in postcolonial theory, finds parallel in nuanced modes of exchange between other and self, considered in continental philosophy.
Exhibitions include: À Distância, Ybakatu, Espaço de Arte, Curitiba, Brazil; Extra-Ordinário, Galeria Monumental, Lisbon, Portugal; White Masks (with composer Silvia Rosani and cellist Esther Saladin), Great Hall, Goldsmiths, London, UK; This Otherworld, The Bun House, London, UK; The Antimatter Factory, Scotty Enterprises, Berlin, Germany.

For Cleave, six artists working across sound, sculpture, video, painting, photography and performance will install their artwork across three arches in a dynamic format that switches between minimal/maximal space and male/female artists.
The word ‘cleave’ means both to split and to adhere to – embodying acts of divergence, as well as convergence. Cleave begins as a concept split along natural lines of being that, when taken as a whole, establishes a common artistic expression linking the three arches into one coherent whole.
