Anna Rose (USA, 1982) has lived and worked in Florence, Italy since 2004. She received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 2014. Her work spans video, installation and photography with a sensibility towards the cultural mythologies embedded in our daily rituals. Drawing on the gestures and objects associated with play, with nourishment and consumption, and with the conventions of beauty, her work often recalls the concept of the vanitas and the passage of time.
«How do we meet each other? How do we spend time together? What do we celebrate? Why do we celebrate? What do we commemorate? How do we mark time? How do we take care of ourselves (and our things)? What are we building? Who will we share it with?»
