Rossella Biscotti's work delves into the material and affective history of the spaces we inhabit, unraveling systems of meaning and relational networks between the human and the non-human. His practice, which combines cinema, sound, sculpture and performance, explores the functioning of ecosystems as open, changing and polyphonic as the collective imaginations and the supports that condition them, be they narrative or material. Linking art with history, archaeology, anthropology, environmental sciences, geopolitics and activism, he questions the uses and abuses of global power by showing everything that lives on the fringes of the official discourse.

For the exhibition at Fabra i Coats, the artist presents two large installations that occupy two floors of the Art Center: The City, a multi-screen projection about a Neolithic city, and The Journey, a sound work about the Mediterranean, each accompanied by a sculptural work: Trees on Land and Drifting respectively, which lead to a cemetery of olive trees and into the sea. Between the two floors, a work unites them physically and conceptually from the entrances of the building: A Conductor, a recycled cable from a dismantled nuclear power plant that is connected to the electric current of the Art Center and provides electricity for the entire exhibition.
