Rossella Biscotti's work deals with the exploration of forgotten or untraced events that reveal changing value systems. She is interested in narrating and manifesting a subject's constitution through its alliances and resistances against violent institutionalised structures.
Using sculpture, performance, filmmaking, Biscotti sensibly weaves together traces of lives, concepts and materials into new narratives, using montage as a spatial gesture of layering their origins.
Her methods show care and attentiveness towards details of individual narratives by gathering information through the recording of oral stories, as from archival research and fieldwork. 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, Biscotti creates links and networks to the present, empowering imagination and experience.
