Conspiracies of silence, hidden agendas and their repercussions, particularly the inequalities faced by women in our culture, are the driving forces behind Ara's work.

Conceptual and data artist Rachel Ara graduated with a Fine Art BA from Goldsmiths College, London, where she won the prestigious Burston award. 

Ara was the winner of the Aesthetica Art Prize 2016 for “This Much I’m Worth”, the self-evaluating artwork. Pulling on her experiences as a computer system designer, the digital sculpture draws on data and complex algorithms to calculate its own value in real time.

Her work is nonconformist with a socio-political edge that often incorporates humour and irony with feminist and queer concerns. 

Ara has just been shortlisted for the forthcoming Lumen Prize for her work D.O.A.M IV (The Death of Ana Mendieta).

She currently lives and works in London.
