CAM in Motion: Latent Echoes

Between May and August, a shipping container located in the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation’s garden will play host to a cycle of videos from the CAM Collection, curated by a group of young people participating in the Gulbenkian 15-25 IMAGINA cultural programming project.

The ‘Latent Echoes’ video cycle proposes a re-reading of a set of videos from the CAM Collection, developing a narrative around the progressive disappearance of human presence and the coexistence of their vestiges with other forms of life, culminating in dematerialisation and spatial abstraction. An inevitable disappearance that is at once both death and transformation – like the ouroboros, the dragon-snake consuming its own tail and symbolising the eternal cycle of renewal of life.

In this narrative we hear echoes of the constant passage from one form to another, establishing, in the repetition, four parts we call «body body body», «presence presence presence», «suspension suspension suspension» e «throbbing throbbing throbbing».

The project ‘Gulbenkian 15-25 IMAGINA’ is made up of a group of young people between the ages of 18 and 25, from different areas of culture, the arts and activism, who will take part in various participatory programming initiatives at the Modern Art Centre (CAM). This edition was curated by Ana Marta Estrada, Joana Gomes, Margarida Bezerra e Bastos, Maria dos Passos Carreira, Pedro Costa and Sandra Varela.
