Yesterday, there was an aqueduct, a river flowing fiercely, a pumping station and reservoirs.
Today there are silent spaces with a memory of a past.
Patriarcal is one of those spaces. In its silence I inserted three projected videos, together with the sound of the pumps and an amplified drop of water. Making the whole space, for a while, artificially alive, vital again.
The Museum of Water in Lisbon Portugal is a unique building housing a pumping system that in bygone days would, through a series of reservoirs, feed the whole city.
A site-specific installation, which reflects on the history of a place, a country, a globe.
