A monk goes through his present and past life, constantly bouncing between desire and denial. His life in the monastery and later in the city evolves around looping patterns, coincidences and unavoidable consequences. Sublime sounds and a delicate system of symbols trace the path for the monk and his fellas to cope with their miseries.
Rosso is an Italian-born artist based in Tallinn, Estonia. With his work he examines the spiritual and physical aspects of daily life through the act of transformation into visual matter. Rosso spends long periods of time working with hand made animation, and merges the animated material with video and film photography gathered from urban and nature exploration. During the last decade Rosso has been working with a multitude of different media – illustration, film and digital photography, painting, printmaking, poetry, video art and several animation techniques. Year by year his work is enriched by gathered experience and the desire to create a personal language. His award-winning animated short films have been shown internationally at Clermont-Ferrand, Hiroshima, Hamburg, L’Étrange, Animateka, Stuttgart, Seoul, Interfilm and Encounters, among others. Aside from his own practice, Rosso has been collaborating with various artists for the development of their projects; since 2014 he has worked for Eesti Joonisfilm Studio as artist, background artist, animator, and short-film director.
