Under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II Under the Presidency of H.R.H the Princess of Hanover The Board of Directors of the Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco, on the occasion of the opening of the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo, invites you to the presentation of the winning work of the 46th International Prize for Contemporary Art (PIAC).
Berlin-based, Italian artist Rosa Barba was awarded the prize for her work’s engagement with concepts of time as something inscribed in landscape and in language, cutting across history and subject matter. Barba is particularly interested in abstracting the medium of cinematography, pushing it to the limits of its possibilities through the creation of three-dimensional installations that involve sculpture and printed material. Subconscious Society focuses once again on her interest in time’s materiality. The work was partly filmed in Manchester’s Albert Hall and around a flotsam off the North Kent coast. Both abandoned spaces are re-inhabited in Barba’s Subconscious Society, blurring the boundaries of time and place. Evolving versions of the film have been screened in New York, Manchester, and Margate, as well as at the 2014 Berlin Biennale. Subconscious Society will be publicly screened in Ibirapuera Park, near the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art (MAM) on September 7, 2016 at 8pm.
