About ​HYDRA:

The works on view in ​ ​HYDRA range from cast aluminum sculptures to assemblages of diverse materials and digital photographs created on a scanner bed.
Rosen is interested in, “How femininity and animality are performed and how they meet in a domestic context.” People perform their animality by having pets or wearing fur. Fashion is a way of performing animality. It’s part of the mating ritual or a warning sign. When we bring pets into our homes are we performing animality? The artist suggests that, “Maybe we’re all—both humans and non-human animals—performing our mutual domestication.”

Selected group exhibitions include ​HOT at Produce Model Gallery, Chicago in 2016, Looking Askance at GallerySKE, Delhi, India in 2015, and ​ ​Diegesis at the Logan Center for the Arts, Chicago in 2013. Rosen has been featured in ​publications including ​Inside/Within, ​ ​Ghost Town Literary Magazine and Jubilat. She received her MFA from the University of Chicago and her BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design.
