The work of Aimée Zito Lema (Amsterdam, 1982) addresses the dynamics between individual and collective memory, with a particular focus on the recording and intergenerational transmission of events, both through material history and through the human body as a mnemonic repository. Placing aesthetic and social practices side by side, her work inhabits a world of critical interaction between the material and the human.
Las Golondrinas (The Swallows) is the name of a Mexican song from the end of the 19th century which is still part of melancholic goodbyes and nostalgic memories. Present in Latin American culture and its particular experience of migration, this song also entitles Maya Saravia's exhibition at Balcony Gallery.
Migration, a documentary theatre piece performed in the Macao Arts Festival in May 2018, produced by the non-profit theatre company Macau Experimental Theatre, puts this agency onto the bodies of a group of Indonesian workers in Macao.
The following five days will be dedicated to the sky. To the great immensity above us and the clouds in movement. To the possibility that lies in the air and the cyclic mixture of changing combinations of elements.
