Rosa Barba in Conversation with Lynne Cooke at Turner Contemporary
Wednesday 13 February 6pm
Join leading international artist Rosa Barba at Turner Contemporary as she reveals her creative approach to the medium of film in a discussion with Lynne Cooke, Andrew Mellon Professor at the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
Rosa Barba’s work pushes the boundaries of film, sculpture and installation. The discussion will explore her recent practice as well as her new exhibition Subject to Constant Change, and installations such as Subconscious Society, currently on display in different cinematic and sculptural formats at Turner Contemporary and Cornerhouse, Manchester. At Turner Contemporary Subconscious Society features local film footage of nearby sea forts, Herne Bay and the Isle of Sheppey and depicts a ‘society’ trapped inside a deteriorating interior, where characters, hidden from the crumbling, abandoned world outside, explore what happens when objects lose their functions and meanings.
Rosa Barba in Conversation with Lynne Cooke will reflect upon the local framework withinSubconscious Society, exploring how the context of Margate impacted on the way in which Barba approached the exhibition.
