Artist Statement

Eleonora Roaro (Italy, 1989)
Lives and works between Milano and Udine (IT).

Her practice involves moving images, with a focus on video and archaeology of cinema. She often revisits ancient devices and iconographies in order to understand the influence that technologies and narratives have on our perception. Therefore display and duration are key elements, especially in video-art. Many projects are on loops, as she considers repetition not only a constitutive element of life, both in biological, historical and existential terms, but also an important concept in media studies, as Lev Manovich states in his “The Language of New Media” (2001). She is currently researching the relationship between architecture and spectatorship in perceiving moving images related to early 20th century cinemas.
