A-DORAR / A-TESORAR (by Micaela Trucco)
Mnemonic supplement that investigates the possibilities of a work of art to build a memory archive. In this case, a group of older women. From the format of the interview, there are two specific orders that provide information to delineate a map that intends to cross temporalities.
This project was born from my work as an art teacher in a neurocognitive rehabilitation center for older adults. During 2 years I worked in stimulating and favoring the cognitive development of people between 65 and 85 years old. Most of my proposals were aimed at reducing the problem of feeling of memory loss, a recurrent symptom in most patients. The group was largely composed of women who, due to their higher life expectancy, usually attend spaces destined for the elderly.
Before leaving that place, I decided that I wanted to take some of that experience with me. Then I recorded precarious interviews of stories. I worked with an approximate group of 15 women and asked them for a memory of their lives and a tip for mine. This archive of memories and advice is built from working with others. It is in the instance where I ask and women access to this request, that I can begin to put together a story as a knowledge material. And it is from the viewer that they choose a council with which they feel empathy, that the work continues in others and expands.
