Memoria is ongoing research that started in 2015 and that encompasses several projects. It all started as a quest to recover and reconstruct every memory I had forgotten.
From 2015 to 2019 I developed a methodology to remember autobiographical memories. This method borrowed techniques from illustration, filmmaking, theater, psychoanalysis, hypnosis and History. It led to the production of several lines of research, multiple art pieces and a pedagogical proposal for Film Education.
After this process, It became obvious to me that in order to remember the autobiographical, one must also examine the transgenerational narratives that lead to the formation of the subject. This research then expanded into an effort to remember memories and stories that had been silenced across generations, which ultimately led to a broader excavation of politics, language, History and transgenerational trauma.
I consider this to be my main line of work and this quest is something I desire to keep as an overarching narrative behind my artistic practice.
Here you can find some of the research articles, art pieces and projects that have been bred out of this quest.
