Sara Rossi. Born in 1970 in Milan, where she lives and works.
Sara Rossi uses video and photography, working with landscape as a space within nature and as a stage for history's portrayal of events, culture and traditions. Her gaze is at times lyrical, focusing on the impermanence of lights and colours, and at other times she meticulously hunts out fragments of different eras remaining in places, which she uses to reconstruct veritable pictorial narratives. These narratives somehow concern us – we recognise them and they seem familiar, like memories deposited in the collective cultural imaginary. (Gaia Pasi)
