INFO

This first major UK solo installation by acclaimed Brazilian artist Rosângela Rennó presents images from the salvaged archives of photojournalist Aurelio Gonzalez and uses 20 analogue projectors.

Taken between 1957 and 1973 it’s drawn from 48, 626 negatives that were hidden between the walls of the Communist El Popular newspaper to prevent them being seized before the military coup and which were only rediscovered by chance 30 years later.

Rennó highlights the overlooked narratives of everyday protagonists during a time of great social and political upheaval in Uruguay and throughout Latin America. She addresses the phenomena of national amnesia surrounding historical events, born out of the censorship imposed by the military regime, and aims to reintroduce these images into a present day context.

With thanks to Catherine Petitgas and other members of the Rosângela Rennó Exhibition Circle
