The Floor is Lava!

Territory #6

Curator: Catarina Laranjeiro e Daniel Barroca

Territory (#6) is dense and complicated, a territory steeped in traps and contradictions and stretching from Guinea-Bissau, where the documentary film Fogo no Lodo is set, to the Sintra suburbs near Lisbon. O Chão é Lava!, after the children’s game 'The Floor is Lava', was the title suggested by artist Sara Santos for this exhibition, in which she presents iconic buildings from Cacém alongside a blanket-map where she has been inscribing a subjective European geopolitics. In another section, Europe pretends to be Africa. Amateur filmmakers living in the suburbs of Lisbon, such as João Pereira (Tikai) and Nelca Lopez, imagine themselves in their home countries. A parallel dialogue is created between former Portuguese soldier José Estima’s gaze on the colonial war in Guinea-Bissau and Ana Temudo’s take on Ramon Sarró and Marina Temudo’s images of the Kyangyang messianic movement. Meanwhile, a publication will be conceived with A Certain Lack of Coherence and a new cinema will be temporarily established with programming by Inês Sapeta Dias, Maria do Carmo Piçarra, and Rui Lopes.
