Tatiana Macedo

Tatiana Macedo develops her work through formats like installation, sound, photography, or cinema, understanding her processes under the logics of the expanded field. Moving between the poetic and the conceptual, her work embraces the borders to place itself on the space of the real, reflecting upon our own conducts from a transversal point of view. Her discourse crosses through identity, postcolonial studies, the construction of History, and the intersections of the political and the social. All of which is done by the use of an aesthetic language that transits between the technical control and the fluency of abandoning oneself to the camera.

Session I

Foreign Grey

The project originates from a photographic commission for the city of Pekin and is able to go beyond that typical tourist look frozen on the retinas to prompt some kind of archaeology of habit; of life. This way interior and exterior connect to place us before a landscape interleaved with memories of gestures and experiences which find their way to us already interpreted, digested, but in some way filled with echoes of reality.

Esgotaram-se Os Nomes Para As Tempestades #2

Esgotaram-se Os Nomes Para As Tempestades #2 is a project filmed at the Confeitaria Cunha in Porto where the architecture like a  protagonist. Outlined between general shots that draw the context and zoomed views that assume an intense physicality, we walk through its corners, its dimensions, we attend the memory of the place. The human presence is breathed even in the absences, in the internal dialogue of the protagonist, in those names that when pronounced vanish, like its narrated memories.

1989, Project with which she won the award Prémio Sonae Media Art (2015), it is presented as a tryptic that gathers the documental formula, the found footage and the fictional discourse to reflect upon the Eurocentric conception and the construction of the historical narratives. As an expanded video-essay divided in three chapters, Tatiana Macedo presents a debate about the language of thoughts, and the structures of power through different geographies.
