Composition and sound design

The Albertina Carri's first explanatory experience, one of the most emblematic figures of the Argentine cinema in recent times.

The artist wonders: “Is it possible to live without remembering?”. And she answers herself, “the rivers of memory are not always mighty, but if even a small line of water runs through, it (water) is so obstinate that will eventually modify any land that it passes by, just from the passing of time. I want to be that riverbed and that land, I want to tell the world about the power of being here and keep on remembering”.

On the prologue of the catalogue that accompanies the showing, Jorge La Ferla says that one of the central topics of this exhibition focuses in the vestiges of information about the past. The information, documents and records conform the recovery of memory from found files -publications, epistolary correspondence, scripts and movie fragments- are the sustent of a politic of files. Carri’s proposal comes out of the biographical thing and registers as a self-portrait that, in turn, relates to a personal experience, a family story and the history of the country.

The whole exhibition requires the spectator to move, and to incorporate a sensory fragmented statement, made up by light, images and sound, that show up a personal, familiar and political memory concentrated on the practice of the installation. An exhibition that shows a political position of the Parque de la Memoria and proposes an artistic complex experience, which defies a perception that needs commitment.
