— What are you thinking about?

The question asked to the passers by in the streets of Prague, a few days before Christmas 2011, produced a long series of spontaneous sentences written on the back of a roll of wrapping Christmas gift paper. Their reading accompanies the faces of the people collected from the people on the street turned towards the camera, during a tribute to Vaclav Havel, the author president (died december 18,2011). On her bicycle, the artist, carries a large banner bearing the image of a Paris street sign: Rue de l’égalité (video). The image follows her in the streets of Paris, a solitary event or a dreamed promenade.

Catherine Radosa looks at the world with a questioning and distanced look, through photography and video, sometimes in situations that she has produced in or with the public space. Through meeting, listening, sharing, she gives voice to the unknown, and produces a sort of collective witness that affects the sense of space (Prague, Paris, Lima) and of the moment. The testimony of the anonymous becomes a situated portrait, between investigation and reverie. The artist refers to realities through individual experience, collective resonances of the present time. Issues of identity, of the relation individual-society, geographical and social boundaries are approached with a look that is not without humor, freedom of speech or poetic imagination.

Catherine Radosa makes images, installations, or constructs situations often in urban spaces, participatory performances Buromobile, 2012-2013.
