13 Shots is the title of the exhibition project by artist Aimée Zito Lema (b. 1982, NL) which opens on Thursday 28 June at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum (Modern Collection Project Space). Curated by researchers Luísa Santos, Ana Cachola and Daniela Agostinho, this is one of the eight chapters of the exhibition created as part of the 4Cs: from Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture, a collaborative project coordinated by FCH-UCP and co-funded by the European Union’s “Creative Europe” programme. The project presented here is the result of a period of research residency completed by the artist at Rua das Gaivotas 6. 13 Shots brings together works that explore various aspects of individual, social and political memory – the result of the artist’s collaboration with the Lisbon Theatre of the Oppressed Group at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum’s Multipurpose Room. Through performative exercises co-created by the artist and the group, the intergenerational transmission of the 25 April revolution and the photographic archive of the ACARTE service become material for investigating the way in which memory is passed on through stories, images, gaps and silences that are reproduced, filled, and reimagined collectively.
