Koffler Gallery presents:   Isabel Rocamora: Troubled Histories, Ecstatic Solitudes

Curator: Mona Filip | Curatorial Advisor: Magda González-Mora

Koffler Gallery presents the first solo show in Canada of British-Spanish artist filmmaker Isabel Rocamora. Her large-scale video installations consider the performative language of human gesture and its relationship to individual and cultural identity. Including Faith (2015, exhibition premiere), Body of War (2010), Horizon of Exile (2007) and Portrait in Time and Gesture (2005), this exhibition examines issues of faith, exile, territorial attachment and the intimacy of violence.

Awarded internationally, Rocamora’s films have been exhibited at the Centre for Contemporary Culture Strozzina, Florence; the National Museum of Photography, Copenhagen; the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel; the Austrian Cultural Forum New York; and the Bologna Museum of Modern Art, among other venues. She is represented by Galeria SENDA.
