Thursday, 2 March 2023
The Screening Room, Block 38 Malan Road, #01-06
7:00pm – 8:30pm

Inside the Outset: Evoking a Space of Passage is a project by artist and filmmaker Rosa Barba following an invitation by Point Centre for Contemporary Art in Nicosia and curator Mirjam Varadinis to propose and realise a project in Cyprus.

It is an investigation into the loaded, transforming topography that is already palpable in the landscape, before we actually understand what language it creates for our society. In that, the film follows Barba’s artistic approach to examine liminal states which manifest in between contested spaces, both mentally and geographically, in order to allow for a new perspective.

The work proposed by the artist in 2013, started in 2014 and consists of two parts: a film and a long-term open-air cinema installation. The project was then presented to the Italian Council and received the first prize at the international competition (Third Edition) in 2018, and was awarded a grant from DGAAP (Directorate General for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Peripheries), Italy.

An introduction to the project and to Rosa Barba’s multifaceted work will be given by Assistant Professor Dr. Marc Gloede, School of Art, Design and Media, NTU, Singapore. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Rosa Barba and Assistant Professor Dr. Marc Gloede.
