My artistic research is based on the concept of ‘escapism’ as a survival instinct in contemporary society. I also explore the relationship between drawing and new media as a bridge between my pictorial tradition and its contemporary use.

As backbone to all my work, I have established a relationship between the civilized and the savage, raising up our primitive values as standards. Current forms of civilization have made us forget and not have a clear reference of our origins. The evolution, as we understand it, is making us lose our essential values that connect us with our environment and therefore with ourselves. I’m looking for a dialogue between new narrative forms and ‘time’, such as video and performance. In my works, I’m using anthropological concepts and the approach to various fields such as dance permits me to understand and associate other disciplines to my artistic discourse, making it richer. That helps me to have a pluridisciplinar method, which I think is primary in our current artistic paradigm.

Rosana Antolí practice combines performance, moving image and drawing.

Antolí specialises predominantly in fictionalised narratives in relation to different materials, and currently she experiments with dance in her works. Her focus is on the intersection of art, choreography and everyday life. Through this she wants to reveal the hidden choreographic commands that structure the everyday, in order to resist the imposition of behaviours, acts and motions. The utopian character is central to her practice, and consequently the failure and absurdity of the actions involved.
