Video cycle: Latent Echoes

The 'Latent Echoes' video cycle was curated by the group of young people who are part of the 'Gulbenkian Imagina' cultural co-programming project. Presented in a shipping container located in the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Garden between May and August 2022, this project was part of the CAM in Motion programme.

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».

Young curators: Ana Marta Estrada, Joana Gomes, Margarida Bezerra e Bastos, Maria dos Passos Carreira, Pedro Costa, and Sandra Varela. This project is part of the programming CAM em Movimento.


CAM in Motion is an ‘outdoor’ programme that brings together a series of site-specific interventions by artists and exhibitions with works from the Collection in different spaces in the city of Lisbon and its surroundings.
