Rossella Biscotti

Rossella Biscotti‘s work deals with the exploration of forgotten or untraced events that reveal changing value systems. She is interested in manifesting a subject’s constitution through its alliances and resistances against violent institutionalized structures – sensibly weaving together traces of lives, concepts and materials into new narratives.

By gathering information through the recording of oral stories, as from archival research and fieldwork, her work is often a montage of various materials and formats, compositions of sculptures, video, performance and sound. Places, which have been tapped historically by forms of mining, exploitation, and confinement, are often the backdrop of her artistic explorations. By questioning the relevance of the information used from a contemporary perspective, she is interested in increasing links and networks to the present, empowering imagination and experience.

Biscotti graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples in 2002 and attended the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam in 2010-2011. She has taken part at major international exhibitions, including the 55th Venice Biennale (2013); the 13th Istanbul Biennale (2013); Documenta 13, Kassel (2012), and Manifesta 9, Genk (2012).
