Cláudia Cristóvão: A Catalogue of Possible Gestures

LUMEN TRAVO gallery is pleased to present the new solo show of Cláudia Cristóvão (b. 1973) – Dakar Biennial revelation prize, 2006 – who combines on this occasion a selection of works from the recent series The File Project and The Chinese Garden. After the success of the video installation Fata Morgana – in which she introspects the mental construction of Africa through the memory of people who were born there but never actually lived in that continent – the artist explores furtherthe narrative potential of especially charged locations, by bringing together different behaviours with varying levels of ambiguity.
