Rosa Pascual is a socially engaged multidisciplinary visual artist. For the past twenty eight years she has been working mostly between London and Barcelona, and for the last few years also Finland and Berlin.
Her work is conceptual and visually based. Her background is in photography, media studies, scenography and storytelling with a high interest in space, movement, and sound. Her work ranges from installations, to video-dance and life performance.
Rosa Pascual funded Art Collaboratif platform seven years ago focusing on collaborating with other art forms and artists as a way of expansion and discovery. Since then, her work has been heading towards more socially engaged projects working for and with communities, setting projects aiming at having a collective sharing of the creative process where participants become artists themselves and experience the journey as well as the end result.
Projects that look at issues that concern them and inviting participation and connection, where gender, age nor background are a barrier. This gives her a huge and gratifying sense of purpose and fulfilment. Her career has put her on a path of approaching art to the community in a more democratised, enjoyable and experiential way, becoming a shared experience.
Her new project, Self by Choice, looks at the neuroscience of body image and how it can impact our sense of self-worth and identity. She has been collaborating with neuroscientist and eating disorders scientist from King’s College, a child psychotherapist and the Head of Westminster NHS for the elder, alongside to a vast research and design team. Right now, she is in the process of developing experiential workshops for schools in Camden.
