Rosie Roberts is an artist and writer from Glasgow interested in observing overlapping relations from an intersectional feminist perspective. She focusses on paratextual matter, for instance: live presence in tandem with an artwork, footnotes as evidence of time spent reading; cinematic experiences and entwined events or (auto)biographies. Her practice is interdisciplinary, collaborative and her work hybrid in form.
Her research surrounds the poetic haptics of everyday occurrence, moving image, auto-theory, auto-fiction, speculative writings and relevance/commons/locality. Peripherally Rosie is interested in football, 16mm film and time - their histories, future and intersections.
Rosie is currently a Projects and Reviews Editor at MAP Magazine alongside fellow artist and writer Alison Scott, and is a visiting lecturer in Art Writing and Moving Image at the Glasgow School of Art and the University of the Highlands and Islands respectively. Her income however is mainly derived from tour guiding, café work and benefits.
Rosie’s work has been published Dostoyevsky Wannabe, SPAM Press, MAP Magazine, Edna Press, The Yellow Paper and The Quarterless Review New York. Her moving image and performance work have been presented at the Glasgow Film Festival, Alchemy Film Festival, the CCA Glasgow, The Glasgow Women’s Library, The Centre for Contemporary Poetry and Poetics, Taigh Chearsabhagh North Uist, WOMP Space Sheffield and The Poetry Club Glasgow.
