Pierre le Riche
Rainbow Rooms recreates a home scene in which the objects are covered with various fabrics and multi-colored yarn. Even the walls themselves are made of woven yarn. The installation reflects the artist’s experience growing up as a gay man in conservative South Africa, and is intended to stimulate a dialogue about identity, exploring struggles of discrimination, acceptance, and masculinity.
Pierre le Riche is an artist from Cape Town, South Africa. He works in sculpture and installation, and does not consider himself a specialist in any one medium or with any one material. He studied interior design and visual art.
