LAURA LIMA / Notas de rodapé de Cinema Shadow, ago – out 2012
Cinema Shadow is Laura Lima’s most recent project. The artist uses her concepts and devices to create a hybrid situation that is something between an art exhibition and cinema. It is not performance, not theater, perhaps reality, not cinema, perhaps fiction.
Last month, in a project sponsored by the state government, she rented a cinema in London where she filmed and projected live, for hours and hours, a film without end. To visit the art exhibition the spectator goes to the cinema, where all the content created by the artist is transformed live into a film and projected onto the cinema screen.
At A Gentil Carioca Lá in Lagoa, Laura Lima presents “Notas de Rodapé de Cinema Shadow” (Cinema Shadow Footnotes). Images, drawings, notes, lists of ideas, and objects that make up the process of creating each of Laura Lima’s films.
