Rosa Tharrats mainly works with textiles. Her exploration is based on the premise that objects whether natural or artificial own an unexplored subjectiveness and can establish an organic relationship with us. She likes to think of matter as an identity of soul and vibration. Often she find herself creating through the interaction between the mineral, the vegetable and the industrial realms. Other recurring themes in her work are transformation, symbiosis, process, compiling, grass roots, the junction of microscopic and macroscopic life, the visible and the invisible, research of the subtle balance between materials, the contrast between that which is vaporous and that which is wild.The majority of materials she works with comes from her family archives or from an archive she has put together through time collecting fabrics, garments,wardrobes and other objects. The archive is an ongoing process that studies and acquires layers of meaning as time goes. Her goal is to create sensorial narrations with layers of meaning through an interdisciplinary method that embraces fashion and visual arts.
