Hangar, center for artistic research
Rua Damasceno Monteiro, Lisbon (P)
Mnemónicas | Mnemonics
Mnemonics is a cooperative research project by Susana Mendes Silva and Frans van Lent.
The project started with the suggestion of a curator, to contact each other, because of their related points of view. After their first meeting the artists decided to cooperate and that collaboration started with a repetition exercise:
They shared two identical car drives on two successive days. These two drives, as much alike as possible, led the artists to the subject of the construction and deconstruction of personal memories. How do memories lead to a journey and how does a journey lead to memories. The human mind as a fluidly changing field of encounters.
The performative presentation of their project will take place at Hangar on Friday June 28, 19:00 PM.
A dupla de artistas irá fazer uma apresentação performativa do seu projecto no Hangar no dia 28 de Junho às 19:00 h.
