Rosa Barba


The works of Rosa Barba (b. 1972 in Agrigento, Italy, living in Berlin) are characterized by the conceptual examination of the medium film. She works with cinematographic situations and in her large-scale installations reassembles the medium film in its individual components image, language, light and mechanics on both narrative and perceptual levels. Just like in her work Footnote (... for a moment ...) (2014), analog film becomes the material and thus the medium of aesthetic reflection. Most recently her works were shown, among others, at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (2015); Venice Biennale (2015; 2007); MIT, Boston (2015); Hong Kong Art Center (2015); Jeu de Paume, Paris (2012; 2010); Tate Modern, London (2010); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (2010); Center of Contemporary Arts, Tel Aviv (2010).
