Residence Botkyrka in collaboration with AllArtNow presents a one day exhibition featuring video art by artist Margarida Paiva.

Saturday 2 December, 3-6 PM (glögg will be served)
Residence Botkyrka’s apartment, Krögarvägen 26 in Fittja.

The video works shows fictional stories or situations connected to isolation, loss, memory and displacement. The short films often depict a character in a brief passage, either physical or mental, drawing on the struggle to overcome oneself. Others are narratives based on real events that are deconstructed and reassembled into poetic fragmented narratives.

Traversings (2017)
3 videos, 3 minutes each (each video shown in a separate projection/room)

The Day I Wasn’t There (2014)
12 minutes

Margarida Paiva (1975) is a visual artist, originally from Portugal, living and working in Oslo. The event is part of Residence Botkyrka’s programme “Developing Nordic Cities” supported by Nordic Culture Point.

This is the final event that is co-organised with AllArtNow and curator Abir Boukhari in Residence Botkyrka for this year.
