Chapter One: The Arrival
Sara Carneiro
24 August

Location
Curator Jean-François Chougnet
Session OPEN CALL FUSO 2022 – selected works

This film reimagines the sea voyages made during the Portuguese expansion. The burnt engine oil creates abstract images, and symbolic elements such as stars, candles and sand tell a story of ocean crossing and land usurpation.

The sea, the somber landscapes of the night sky, the subtle movements of clouds and waves convey the passage of time and the anticipation of arrival.

“Chapter One: The Arrival” is a reflection on history. An attempt to grasp the turn of events that created momentum for history to unravel. The importance of revisiting the past, as if we could change it, and rewrite the narrative of the “heroes” and “conquests” that defined an era. The use of black burnt engine oil connects the voyage to the present day. This liquid embodies the capitalist system, the greed and exploitation of natural resources, reminding us that the colonial project still prevails.
