INL Gallery reopens with a new exhibition at gnration, Gaia by Salomé Lamas

April 22, 2021

Until 29 May 2021, the INL Gallery at gnration Arts Center in Braga, Portugal, will feature “Gaia” a media art installation within the INL Scale Travels program, that brings together Arts and Science.

This new exhibition is brought to us by Salomé Lamas. She studied cinema in Lisbon and Prague, visual arts in Amsterdam and is a PhD candidate in contemporary art studies in Coimbra. She’s among Portugal’s most interesting filmmakers and explores the boundaries and circumstances of documentary filmmaking, working at the intersection of ethnography, history, storytelling, memory, and fiction. Her short films and video installations—powerful portraits, in a sense—investigate the traumatically repressed, the seemingly un-representable, and the historically invisible, from the horrors of colonial violence to the landscapes of global capital


Her work has been screened both in art venues and film festivals such as Berlinale, BAFICI, Museo Arte Reina Sofia, FIAC, MNAC – Museu do Chiado, DocLisboa, Cinema du Réel, Visions du Réel, MoMA – Museum of Modern Art, Museo Guggenheim Bilbao, Museu Serralves, Tate Modern, among others.

In the midst of a pandemic, following the invitation made by gnration in close partnership with INL, Salomé Lamas visited INL and worked with INL Researchers to bring “Gaia” to life.

In “Gaia” is a multidisciplinary project with an approach between science, technology and the arts, in dialogue with contemporary thinkers and that promotes an ecological production. It comprises two works, a record-cum-publication and an installation.
