Rachel Capovila is from and based in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, in the North-West of England. Although part of her childhood (1970’s) was spent in Argentina, where her Dad is from, before the family came back to Barrow. Rachel’s cross-disciplinary, process-led practice often explores memory, place and finding the links that connects us all. Rachel’s practice encompasses film, photography, mixed media textiles and installation.
Collaboration is also a key part to her practice, working with artists, collectives, communities and arts organisations on a broad spectrum of participatory projects. Rachel’s skills also cross over to being an arts professional, a facilitator, a short film producer and technically skilled in film areas. Rachel has been published and exhibited internationally.
