Salomé Lamas
Bio/Filmography

In a fertile occupation of ‘no man’s land’ Lamas attempts to dissolve the apparent border between documentary and fiction; with an interest in the intrinsic relationship between storytelling, memory, and history, while using 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.

Salomé Lamas (1987, Lisbon) studied cinema in Lisbon (Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema) and Prague (Filmová a Televizni Fakulta Akademie Múzick’VCH
V Praze), visual arts MFA in Amsterdam (Sandberg Instituut, Gerrit Rietveld Academie) and is a Ph.D candidate in Contemporary Art Studies in Coimbra (Universidade de Coimbra).

Her work has been screened both in art venues and film festivals such as Berlinale – Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin, NIMK – Netherlands Instituut voor Mediakunst, Festival Internazionale del Cinema di Roma, BAFICI, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, FIAC, MNAC – Museu do Chiado, DocLisboa, Cinema du Réel, Visions du Réel, MoMA – Museum of Modern Art, Museo Guggenheim Bilbao, Pacific Film Archive, Harvard Film Archive, Museum of Moving Images NY, Jewish Museum NY, Fid Marseille, Arsenal Institut fur film und videokunst, Viennale, Hong Kong Film Festival, UCLA Film & Television Archive, Serralves – Museu de Arte Comtemporânea, Tate Modern, Centre d’Art Contemporain de Genève, Bozar – Palais des Beaux-Arts, TABAKALERA, ICA – The Institute of Contemporary Arts, Mostra de São Paulo, CAC – Contemporary Art Center Vilnius.
