Agathe ROSA (Annecy, 1987) lives and works in Marseille (Fr) and Torino (It)

The attention of Agathe Rosa is focused on the interaction of natural light with Man and territories.
By exploring the capacities of this "luminous matter", she uses cognitive processes (perception, sensation, memory, representation) and interrogates our conception of solidity of things. Because it is when matter becomes movement and interaction of forces, that we can question what remains invisible to our eyes. The creative process of Agathe Rosa is generally initiated by an intuitive and founding photographic act from which the work deploys from the site-specific immersive installation to the drawing, through the assembly of objects, the video or the writing. She is particularly attentive to the interval: this floating space of resonance which is the place of the transfiguration of reality, where innocuous passages and secret links between each entity are created. Thus in her work, the laws of physics are outdated, a dizziness grips us, the scales are disproportionated, time becomes matter and the light the main protagonist of this cosmogony.

After a bachelor at the Sapienza in Rome, she gratuates from the National School of Architecture of Marseille with honors in 2011 supporting her thesis: "Time given to the critical thinking". Then she abandons construction to transform the concrete into ephemeral.

Her work has been presented in France and internationally in many institutions such as the "Italian Cultural center" for the Biennal Manifesta13, Marseille (Fr), the "CNES - La Chartreuse", Villeneuve lez Avignon (Fr), the "Museo Helio Oiticica", Rio de Janeiro (Br), "Center Pompidou", Paris (Fr), "Museo Santa Maria della Scala", Siena (It), "Galleria d'Arte moderna e Contemporanea Raffaele de Grada". San Gimignano (It) or the "Saint-Exupéry Cultural Center", Reims (Fr).

In parallel of her artistic research, she teached 4 years as Professor in Art and techniques of representation at Ensa Marseille, intervenes in many seminars including "Atelier Khora - Ville Paysage à la Maison de l'Architecture et de la Ville, Marseille (Fr), "Discours Eupaliniens", Frac Paca, Marseille (Fr) and "I mondi dell 'arte", Accademia delle Belle Arti, Bologna (It). In 2014 she produced a book project of cross interviews with Michelangelo Pistoletto on the artist / craftsman relationship.
