Aimée Zito Lema: Here Is Where We Meet

Aimée Zito Lema: Here Is Where We Meet

Exhibition
15 April - 22 August 2021
Oude Kerk Amsterdam

In the past three years, Zito Lema has investigated two conflict situations of which the Oude Kerk forms the centre: the Beeldenstorm (roughly: ‘image storm’) of 1566 and the recent resistance to a red stained glass window. The traces left behind by both conflicts form the starting point for Zito Lema’s new work, which consists of photography, sculptures, textile works, poetry and an installation with basins.

What if eternal life were possible by the simple procedure of uploading your mind to the cloud? What would that mean for your humanity, your identity and your relationships with others? In the film version of his newest opera Upload, which will have its Dutch premiere online via Medici TV on 16 July, Michel van der Aa deals with these questions. The opera film will be available from 16 July until 27 August and can only be viewed in the Netherlands. Furthermore the theatre version of Upload will also be performed at Dutch National Opera next October.

Portraits make the absent present and remind us of those whom we wish to commemorate when they are no longer with us. Those have been the two main functions of portraits since classical times. This was perpetuated when portraiture entered on its first great flowering around 1500, both north and south of the Alps. Be it those dear to us, a celebrity or a donor venerating a saint, the sitter is speaking to the viewer with the words ‘Do not forget me’.
