Ana Guedes’ work centres on the question of which stories are passed on and which are lost. At Oude Kerk she will present a new sound installation, inspired by the interplay between personal and political history as reflected in her family archive: her works are often a mix of historical and personal stories.
As in earlier works, Guedes takes the record collection of her Portuguese family as a starting point for her installation in the Oude Kerk. Having travelled across three continents, this record collection reflects the migration of her family. They bought the first records in Angola in the 1960s, after war broke out in the former Portuguese colony and expanded the collection with vinyl from Portugal and Canada until the 1980s. The scratches on the records and the moth-eaten covers betray the passage of time. The records are passive witnesses to a displacement in time and space.
