Rosa Barba explores the aleatory and psychic dimensions of the image, the speculative narration that conjures invisible landscapes, landscapes with unseen histories, and the characteristic evocation of cinematic narrative through the use of moving and projected text and sometimes an off-site reference to a historic event in Modernist discourse. Informed by a social and cultural research, the re-presentation of Barba’s subjects are constructions of peculiar monuments in history used like metaphors for realized utopias. Places where nothing seems contradictory but includes absurd ideas and paradoxical actions within one frame. It’s like listening to several voices from tiny parts of a society, which are constantly reforming by also asking the viewer to continually take a new position for the future.
