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
