Rosa Barba was born in 1972 in Agrigento, Italy. She lives and works in Berlin. Her work engages questions of time, materialized by inscriptions in landscapes and language, cutting across historical periods and subject matter.

Rendered in filigree neon tubes, this light installation comprising four handwritten titles of previous works by the artist, was originally created and presented for the first time in the 16th-century garden of Villa Medici in Rome. The titles, installed on the ground, weave a new and fragmented narrative out of the works made in recent years, introduced here on a larger scale. In the dark the works unfold like a poem floating in space. Difficult to decipher from ground level, each work is an image belonging to a broader context, seemingly designed to be seen from the heavens.
