Mònica Roselló IN RESiDENCE at the School Joan Boscà


Mònica Roselló (Tarragona, 1961) launched her professional career in 1986 as a freelance photographer in the fields of advertising, architecture and interior design, alternating this work with the development of personal projects. In the mid-eighties she began to teach photography and worked as a professor of projects at such centres as the Elisava School and the School of Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. She currently teaches at Pompeu Fabra University.

In the field of art photography, she has received several commissions that led to exhibitions and publications, including L’objectiu a la biblioteca (Generalitat de Catalunya, 1996), Stalking Detroit (Actar, 2001), Barcelona Acròstic (Destino, 2002), Saharauis, solo el desierto (Asociación Rivas-Sahel, Madrid, 2004) and Genius Loci (Arola, Tarragona, 2010). 

The most outstanding exhibitions and installations of her personal work – some produced in cooperation with the photographer Jordi Guillumet – include: L’armari de l’arquitecte, an installation devoted to the creative action in architecture; Objecte d’observació, a visual exploration of the spectator’s role in shows; Darrera versió, sequenced portraits; Tabula rasa, a meditation on the mechanisms by which memories are constructed; Rear window, a visual exhibition of intimacy seen through windows; Reading Between Streets, on the importance of the use of the public space as a key for communication and " Double Exposure " travel as a means of survival.
