AGNES Program

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is an artist whose research-based practice resists colonial erasures and claims the freedom of historical agency, proposing mechanisms for remembering and reimagining.

Workshop (for students)

This workshop is interested in exploring the ways that art can be used to create documents that recombine and resignify histories. By collapsing time and distance, film and video open up possibilities that can be particularly useful to colonized and displaced people looking to produce counter narratives or to defy their erasure. The conversation is rooted in an experimental, politically implicated, research-based approach to camera, sound and editing. We will watch and discuss works that examine architectural and natural spaces, and the layers of history that inhabit them, exposing their poetic and political implications. Participants will analyze their formal approaches to identify practical ideas that can support their own projects. Strategies like artisanal film development, mixing formats, manipulating biodeterioration, and multi-channel installation will also be discussed as tools to explore presence, absence, impermanence, intertextuality, and memory work. The group will also be invited to go on a walk together and practice some of the ideas from the workshop with their cell phone cameras in a group exercise.
