The singularity of Salomé Lamas' work lies in the dialogue of different modes of signification (writing, cinema, video, installation, theater, performance). The originality of this work, which she has dubbed parafiction, presents a polygraphic nature that ends up providing a large-scale mapping of contemporary artistic creation understood in its transdisciplinary dimensions evidence of a research embedded in the present time, but which frames production processes.
This book covers Lamas’s selected works from 2017 to 2024 and includes project notes and production memoirs, text contributions fromcurators, schoolars and programmers, as well as selected interviews.
