>Would love to see you around on Thursday in the private view of my latest work "Where is Lourenço Marques?" ( http://www.lourencomarques.net/presentation/ ) . There will be a panel with discussion and ... canapes and drinks (I hope). It will be a great evening. Really hope you can make it.
Tin Shed is pleased to present a new work by Goldsmiths PhD candidate Rui Filipe Antunes, Where is Lourenço Marques?, a 3D virtual environment build from the personal testimonies of former inhabitants of the city that used to be known as Lourenço Marques.
>Where: Tin Shed Gallery
> Ben Pimlott Building Foyer
> Goldsmiths College, New Cross
>Private View & Panel: Thursday 29th November, 6pm –
>Exhibition open: Friday 30th November – Friday 14th
December, 10am – 6pm. Closed Weekends.
>About the Exhibition
>In the landscape of colonial Portugal, Lourenço Marques was
the proud capital of the province of Mozambique. This work
is devoted to those who lived and inhabited that time and
place, and those who rushed to abandon it during a
three-year process of decolonisation between 1974 and 1976.
Many of those former inhabitants will never return and for
many only a great disenchantment or nostalgia is left. For
others, Lourenço Marques evokes memories of a magical space
and time. This work is a representation of the city as it
was before it became known at Maputo in 1975, a memorial
taking expression in a mosaic of voices and multiple forms
of visual representation.
>To accompany the launch of the exhibition, Tin Shed will be
hosting a panel discussion in the Goldsmiths Digital Studios
focusing on the role of collective memory in the
construction of community identity and sense of place. Rui
Filipe Antunes will open with a discussion of the research,
that has informed the development of Where is Lourenço
Marques?, his talk will be followed by Catarina Valdigem
Pereira and Amal Kalaf. Pereira will be looking at the
importance of interior house decorations in the enactment of
collective memories of belonging amongst Portuguese Muslims
of Indian and Mozambican origins, while Kalaf will be
presenting her paper on a year and a half of digital images
of the Lulu roundabout in Bahrain.
