Details
Rachel Herrick is an artist based in Raleigh, NC whose satirical work focuses on identity and information credibility. Her recent work, titled "The Museum for Obeast Conservation Studies (MOCS)", critiques the social stigma around obesity through the legitimizing tropes of natural history and nature conservation. (Obeasts are a fictional genus of mammals, performed by Rachel herself.) The project is loosely conducted as a scientific organization that coordinates obeast field research and educates the public about obeasts through museum exhibitions, videos and an informative website (www.obeasts.org).
