Rosa Barba


The work of Rosa Barba (*1972 in Agrigento / Italy, lives in Berlin) often focuses on an examination of the medium of film and industrial cinema. In room-filling installations, Barba reassembles elements of filmic staging such as image, language, light, and production technology on both narrative and perceptual levels. This Space Populated by Infinite Colors (Lee Filters CL158-029) consists of hand-blown glass plates in shades of the red color spectrum, which Lee Filters offers as lighting filters. The irregularities of the glass additionally illustrate the realization that not only the fiction in the film, but also reality itself is crafted. Recent exhibitions of Barba’s work include at: Arter, Istanbul (2019); Center for Contemporary Art Kitakyushu, Japan (2018); Kunsthalle Bremen (2018); Tabakalera, International Centre for Contemporary Culture, San Sebastian (2018); Secession, Vienna (2017); Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2016); CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux (2016); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt/Main (2016); Venice Biennale (2015, 2007); MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge/Mass.
