MDR’s work explores conditions and experiences of power, alienation, invisibility and displacement, through a critique of global economic and political systems. Her installations call into question dominant historical narratives, disrupting perceived notions of the post-war era with her investigations into the materiality of evidence and the status of knowledge. She seeks to make tangible the ways economic, political and military structures of power, taking place out of sight, impact our everyday lives. Offering a reflection on the relationship of visibility to invisibility, Rapicavoli invites her viewers to reconsider the present through a critical analysis of the past. Her practice originally comes out of a background in a documentary photography, film and video and has developed to include sculpture and installation.
