Rosa Barba works with different ways of fragmenting cinematic language. In her words: “I am always searching for new ways of dealing with my subjects, and orchestrating them together in the same space makes the most sense. The theme of ‘instability’ is something that all the works also have in common. The sculptural work emerges from a tension between its own elements – the result is something between a balancing act and a magic trick.
The idea of ‘transformation’ and ‘instability’ is always tangible; films are transformed into texts and texts into films. Pauses or intervals, are used in all the works, to express a sense of lost time in the interstices between the frames. This is critical for representing movement, but unseen, its ‘discontinuity’ disappears into the continuous flow.”
