Artist Statement:
Jean Carla Rodea (b in Mexico City) is an interdisciplinary artist and educator currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work involves a variety of disciplines and mediums such as music, sound, vocal performance, photography, video, movement, poetry, installation and sculpture. Her artistic practice deals with spaces and instances where socio-political and cultural constructs are rendered visible through multimedia installations and performance. Rodea is invested in understanding how time is insistently constructed through memory and how these memories whether embodied or recorded in spaces are documented and re/constructed. Archival research, whether it takes place in an institution or in her personal archive, often leads her to draw from fiction and speculative history around documents, physical traces, and spaces.
