Artist Rosa Barba talks about Roni Horn’s exhibition ‘SWEET IS THE SWAMP WITH ITS SECRETS’ at Hauser & Wirth Monaco.
About Rosa Barba Rosa Barba is an artist and filmmaker who balances conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision in her work. She merges films, sculptures, installations, live-performances, text pieces and publications that are grounded in the material and conceptual qualities of cinema. She also creates installations and site-specific interventions to analyze the ways film articulates space, placing the work and the viewer in a new relationship. Her work is part of numerous international collections and has been exhibited internationally at prestigious institutions and biennials worldwide including Villa Medici, Rome (2022), Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2021/2022), Cukrarna, Ljubljana (2022), Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid (2017), the 56th, 53rd, 52nd Biennale di Venezia, Italy and the 7th Beaufort Triennial, Belgium(2021). In 2020, Rosa Barba was awarded the Calder Prize by The Calder Foundation. Her work has been widely published, most recently, in the monograph Rosa Barba: On the Anarchic Organization of Cinematic Spaces – Evoking Spaces beyond Cinema (2021).
