Moving Image Lab


The Moving Image Lab is a residency program integrated into the FUSO INSULAR event; a space/time dedicated to the creation of video works.
During the summer, between theoretical and practice meetings, reflection on the moving image is stimulated as an artistic expression, transversal to all practices, crossing languages of experimental film, performance, photography and cinema.

In 2021, under the theoretical guidance of Susana de Sousa Dias and practical monitoring by André Laranjinha, eight artists living in the Azores – Carolina Rocha, Diogo Sousa, João Amado, Madalena Correia, Mariana Medeiros, Nina Medeiros, Rodrigo Mota and Sara Brum, proposed ideas, created scripts and filmed on the islands of São Miguel and Terceira.

Autobiographical or fictional, the works reflect in a critical but also affective way, the relation of the artists with the territory, its people and their customs.
The memory that fades, but that we want to preserve; the nostalgia for living in an isolated land; the human condition before an oppressive society; the pilgrimage through a landscape in transformation, are some of the themes that mark the second edition of the Moving Image Lab. And there is also the pleasure of a fresh fruit…

The Moving Image Laboratory is co-produced by the Archipelago – Center for Contemporary Arts.
