In the talk, which marks the end of the exhibition Teologia Natural and UM, Alina d’Alva Duchrow, a Brazilian visual artist and architect, will talk about her recent works in which she investigates historical events, residues of colonialism, that are forgotten, rendered invisible or deliberately denied by the official discourse.
Her work unfolds in a cartography of narratives that denounce an event through a multi-temporal and polyphonic enunciation. It focuses particularly on micro-narratives and on the artist’s own biographical crossings, putting in correspondence different regimes of images and narrative modes.
The artist will also present other projects that focus on a local context, a starting point that will generate tools and ideas on how to deal with time, space and the other.
Alina d’Alva Duchrow currently lives and works in Rabat.
