Rossella Biscotti was born in 1978, in Molfetta, Italy.
She lives and works in Amsterdam.
She is in residency in Kadist until October, 2012, and, as part of her research, she will co-curate an exhibition of the Kadist collection. During 2012, her work has been presented in Manifesta 9 (Gent) and Documenta 13 (Kassel).
In her works, Rossella Biscotti raises the issue of time and concepts it induces, between real time and fictional time.
Attached to the aesthetics of the documentary, she uses it to show that it is impossible to fully account for a truth, various interpretations turning it into a multiple reality. Her work questions the trust that we tend to give too easily to historical documents, whether films, photographs, but also actions. Considering the past as an effective vector of change, her works reflect the active role it plays in the construction of the present, while questioning the legitimacy of History and of those who build it.
