Selected for the NEARCH residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, Rossella Biscotti specializes in filmmaking, perfomance and sculpture.
Rossella Biscotti uses montage as a gesture to reveal individual narratives and their relation to society. In her cross-media practice, cutting across filmmaking, performance and sculpture, she explores and reconstructs obscured moments from recent times, often against the backdrop of state institutions. In the process of composing her personal encounters and oral interrogations into new stories, the site of investigation tends to leave its mark on her sculptures and installations. By examining the relevance of the recovered material from a contemporary perspective, Biscotti sensibly weaves a link to the present.
Rossella Biscotti was selected in relevance to the following NEARCH activity.
