Renaissance nouveau (2015)

Exhibited by Joanna Bird at Collect 2015, Saatchi Gallery, London.

“From the beginning of her carrier, Rósa Gísladóttir has been adhering strictly to the laws of symmetry in her art. The aim is not to glorify or revive the eternal and imperishable truth of a view of the world which has now disappeared; rather the aim is to make us aware of the genealogy of the forms and the change which their meaning has undergone in the course of history.“

(Ólafur Gíslason, “Angelus Novus, Vis-à-vis, The Ruins of History“, Come l'acqua come l'oro.../ Like Water Like Gold..., Palombi Editory, 2012.)
