There is a coincidence between power and image, between violence and representation. Rozalinda Borcila’s work is an encounter with power in visual terms, beginning with the problem of looking and looking back. The work is deeply suspicious of established structures of representation, and often concerned with the ideological underpinnings of visual languages. More importantly, the artist considers the critical possibilities offered by small acts of transgression or trespass – considered not for their value as individual acts, but for the potential of their accumulation. The dynamic buildup of infinitely small disturbances changes structure into movement, being into becoming, a thing into a current. As this dynamic develops and builds, representation moves, strains against its surface, swells and eventually breaks.
