Ketty LA ROCCA
Ketty La Rocca (1938 –1976) was one of the leading body art and visual poetry artists working in the mid 1960s-1970s. She radically dealt with the sociopolitical limits of the meaning of language and images in her collages, video, ‘riduzioni’ (‘reductions’), performances and photographs. Central to her work is the examination of bodily gesture as an ‘original means of communication.’ Her works are included in collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Museum Ostwall, Dortmund, and the Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence, and have been exhibited at such institutions as the Venice Biennale; Camden Art Centre, London; Galerie im Taxispalais, Innsbruck; and Albertina, Vienna.
