Perpetually Settling Dust
Monica Camin’s installation, Perpetually Settling Dust, was exhibited during Memories, the ‘aceNITE carried out on May the 20th of 2015.
A human shaped fabric piece which also worked as a screen for a video that was produced in collaboration with Kaloian Santos Cabrera (a Cuban photojournalist), was exhibited at the Poliglota Room of the ’ace house. Through documentary, poetic images and the constant sound of Mothers and Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, the video amplified the solemn and ceremonial atmosphere of this piece that researched the residual effects of cultural trauma.
During the artist’s residence, several encounters took place, where than 20 participants collaborated by embroidering the big cloth with names of the desaparecidos (the people who was disappeared) during the Argentinian dictatorship that took place in the 70’s and 80’s.
