Exhibition: Rosa Barba: Between objects in the waking world
VOID DERRY City Factory Patrick Street BT48 7EL Derry/Londonderry
Void Gallery (Derry, Ireland) is delighted to welcome Rosa Barba to exhibit her solo exhibition Between Objects in the Waking World in March 2018. She will be showing three films; Disseminate and Hold which investigates manmade geographies and landscapes, and how these are often deeply enmeshed with political agendas and utopian visions; Somnium, whose point of departure is a short story by the German astronomer Johanner Kepler, draws together many of the key concerns that have emerged in the artist’s oeuvre over the past decade; and Outwardly from Earth’s Centre, which is built on a narrative of a fictitious society on an unstable piece of land in danger of disappearing.
Rosa Barba is an artist with a particular interest in film and the ways it articulates space, placing the work and the viewer in a new relationship. Questions of composition, physicality of form and plasticity play an important role in the perception of her work.
Her film works are situated between experimental documentary and fictional narrative, and are indeterminately situated in time. They often focus on natural landscapes and man-made interventions into the environment and probe into the relationship of historical record, personal anecdote, and filmic representation, creating spaces of memory and uncertainty, more legible as reassuring myth than the unstable reality they represent.
The exhibition is supported by the Goethe-Institut London and will take place from 24. March 2018 until 12. May 2018.
