Sara Rossi

Milan, Italy

Sara Rossi (Milan, 1970). Lives and works in Milan.

Through the use of video and photography he works on the landscape as a space of nature and as a stage for history: events, culture and human traditions. Sara alternates a lyrical look attentive to the impermanence of lights and colors to a meticulous search for fragments left by the ages in the places with which she reconstructs real stories in images; narratives that somehow concern us that we recognize and feel familiar as memories deposited in the collective cultural imagination (Gaia Pasi, 2010).

His artistic research investigates the relationship between reality and imaginary with a particular interest in stories and true stories, for things found, coincidences, popular wisdom, and for images / world able to surprise or deceive in 3D.
