About the show

Rosa Barba’s medium is film and her work relates in various ways to filmic methods and genres. The artist’s interest in the narrative techniques of cinema is highly important in her works. It results in a series of experimental approaches in which all elements can work together and become conveyors of meaning – the purely visual, the technical equipment and the sound. The artworks do not lock different genres in place but rather give an impression of dissolving them: here documentary is combined with fiction, myth with reality, tangible material with textual elements and poetry.
