The show

Since its inception in 2016, the Art Club cycle of exhibitions has fostered dialogue between the works of international contemporary artists and the heritage of the French Academy in Rome . Through visual and plastic interventions scattered throughout the spaces of Villa Medici (loggias, gardens, halls), the Art Club series renews the experience of visiting a place in which different historical eras intertwine and unexpected combinations occur.

For the next appointment of the cycle in September, Villa Medici welcomes the Italian artist and filmmaker Rosa Barba . His work, halfway between cinema and contemporary art, will be exhibited in conjunction with the Villa Medici Film Festival to be held from 14 to 18 September 2022 .

Rosa Barba presents three works that offer an overview of over 10 years of artistic practice, combining film, sculpture, sound and text.

With Disseminate and Hold (2016), Rosa Barba explores the landscapes shaped by Man, often the result of political imaginaries and utopian visions. Shot in Brazil, the film portrays the daily chaos of the Minhocão (the "big worm"), the elevated highway that crosses the center of Sao Paulo, the starting point for a reflection on the traces left by history on the landscape and the urban environment. .

Color Clocks: Verticals Lean Occasionally Consistently Away from Viewpoints (2012) is composed of three objects arranged in space whose appearance resembles the mechanism of a clock. Each produces a kinetic image through its own specific rhythm. Playing with different modes of perception, the Color Clocks installation aims to capture the measure and experience of time itself, inviting an endlessly repeated meditation on color, time, perception and language.
