Lives and works in New York (United States)
Role-play and storytelling are central to the approach of Bunny Rogers, an artist and poet based in New York. Her pieces can be considered "collages" of her different "selfs" filtered through a fertile imagination that feeds off social networks and the Internet.Rogers grew up in New Jersey, Texas and Long Island (New York State). While at school, she applied to Parsons School of Design to study fashion. She graduated with an art degree in 2012. In 2017 she earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
A rising figure of the so-called post-Internet generation, Rogers works independently in different creative fields, through a variety of forms and channels, with information technology occupying a central role. Sculptures, installations, photographs, videos, animated films, websites, 3D modelling, poems and publications in both physical and virtual form: Rogers’ creations make up a strangely familiar world, fuelled by varying but specific references. Recurrent themes include experience, memory, community life, friendship, emotions and identity. Her work is marked by a certain existential anguish, in which the personal and the universal, reality and fiction, blur into and feed off each other.
