Aimée Zito Lema. 13 Shots

The work of Aimée Zito Lema (Amsterdam, 1982) addresses the dynamics between individual and collective memory, with a particular focus on the recording and intergenerational transmission of events, both through material history and through the human body as a mnemonic repository. Placing aesthetic and social practices side by side, her work inhabits a world of critical interaction between the material and the human.
