Rose de la Riva

Rose de la Riva is a visual artist and cultural worker born under the sign of cancer in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal. In a sponge-like manner, she soaks everything up, collects experiences, texts and emotions sparked by stories, paintings, plants and landscapes. Takingimprovisation and intuitive associations as a starting point, the resulting practice is based on performance art and a production of videos, drawings and installations.
The multidisciplinary aspect of her practice allows her to reflect (on) the cyclical nature of her research, and develop a methodology that unfolds with the seasons. In response to a default state of burnout and the burden of care, her current research is turning to the possibilities of renouncement, immobility, pause and rest.
