Salomé Lamas (Lisbon, 1987) is a researcher and filmmaker whose work dissolves the apparent border between documentary and fiction. With an interest in the intrinsic relationship between storytelling, memory, and history, Lamas uses the moving image to explore the traumatically repressed, seemingly unrepresentable, or historically invisible, from the horrors of colonial violence to the landscapes of global capital. Her films have been shown in numerous national and international film festivals and have received various awards and honours. The exhibition at Serralves presents three recent films: Terra de Ninguém [No Man’s Land] (2012), Teatrum Orbis Terrarum (2013) and the premiere of a new work, Mount Ananea (5853) (2015).
As part of the exhibition, on 14 March 2015, Salomé Lamas will take part in a conversation with the exhibition’s curator, João Ribas, followed by presentation of four other films directed by the artist. ‘Parafiction’ also includes the release of a vinyl record with music by João Lobo, Norberto Lobo, Bruno Moreira and Salomé Lamas, which constitutes an integral part of the film, Mount Ananea (5853).
Part of the Contemporary Projects series, ‘Parafiction’ inaugurates the Serralves Project Room on the second floor of the Museum which has free admission. Contemporary Projects is a new axis in the programming of the Museum combining a wide range of media and diversity of presentation forms, from exhibitions featuring a single work at the Museum to projects unfolding over several moments and across different periods of time. This will be a dynamic, reactive platform for the exhibiting of works by some of the most relevant contemporary artists active today in Portugal and around the world.
‘Salomé Lamas: Parafiction’ is curated by João Ribas, Deputy Director and Senior Curator, Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art.
14 MAR (SAT), 17.00, Auditorium
Film screening followed by a conversation with the artist and João Ribas, Deputy Director of the Serralves Museum and curator of the exhibition.

Curated by Anna Manubens & Emilie Bujes
"It all starts with an impossibility, whether it be the origin of the film, or be it encountered during the process of making it, or merely portrayed. A physical or psychological constraint, a political restriction that the film not only mirrors, but potentially takes advantage of.
We Can't Go Home Again initiates with works whose circular structures serve as an introductory prologue, in which detour and convolution become means to wrestle with an elusive center. The program delves into films that reflect on political inhibition and the ways to address it in terms of construction and form. It takes a journey across works that dare putting cinematic grammar and discursive assertiveness at risk in their steps towards visual and political dissent.
Progressing towards more personal objects, the program slowly turns to a series of works in which the impossible and the threat of collapsing are closely connected to a foregrounded first person and its affects; losing battles, at times purely utopian, often extremely intimate and therefore inherently burdensome and sensitive. We Can Go Home Again thereby ends on a selection of works in which affective collapse – depression, melancolia, heartbreak... in sum, being blue – is mirrored in the defiguration of images and speech. Far from conveying helplessness, these cinematic choices demonstrate that being reluctant to assertion and admitting one's own frailty of inher coherence are yet other expressions of emancipation."
The list of films includes works made by artists such as (TBC): Beatrice Gibson, Dora Garcia, Jafar Panahi, Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Marie Voignier, John Smith, Alex Reynolds, Victor Iriarte, Nicholas Ray, Anne Charlotte Robertson, Derek Jarman, Joaquim Pinto.
