River Flows, 2016
AN EXHIBITION OF INSTALLATION WORKS AT MIMO (MUSEUM OF MOVING IMAGE) IN LEIRIA, PORTUGAL BY INES AMADO AND JOSE FERREIRA.
This exhibition evolved from a dialogue between José Ferreira and Inês Amado. The exhibition concept matured over an extended period of time while inhabiting the city of Leiria, as a foreigner, and a flaneuse; they traversed the city, transgressing spaces of resistance and integrating spaces of community. These corporeal experiences are symbolically reflected in the river Lys, which runs through the city, a body of water that collects fragments, mirrors current experience, and evokes memories of the past. The works expose the continuous flow, transformation, and temporality of displacement.
