Cartographie des territoires affectifs Creative Residence 2018 | Cine Luso Espirito Mundo. These photos where taken during the preparation of one of the scenes of “Cartography of the Affective Territories”, an experimental short film in which the artist participated. The short-film is the result of the transdisciplinary artistic residence at Cine Luso Espírito Mundo, 2018 in Brussels, Belgium.
A experimental film based on a set of testimonies of migrants from various origins and statutes, suported by visual arts to recreate a trip to an imaginary space where it addresses the condition of foreigner, territory and its memory.
With a documentary approach, the narrative departs from an artistic plan in a game where the cartographic maps are redesigned assuming an emotional and affective state that questions the body-man as the last frontier in relation with the other and with the own spacial displacement.
