“Man, feeling the abyss of his own
destruction as an individual under
his feet, grabs hold of his own
Miguel Torga, Diário

Esmeralda Da Costa, an artist of Portuguese origin, has been exploring issues of memory and immigration for over a decade. As part of the Vidéoformes festival, the artist has turned the Galérie Claire Gastaud into an intimate cartography of her dual culture, deploying the fruit of a personal experience of time and transmission.

Through a series of photographic, video and installation works, Esmeralda Da Costa traces her roots and simultaneously raises the question of anchoring. The challenge of the artist’s work lies in the articulation of collective memory and individual recollections. Immersive and poetic, Tenir ses racines (Holding on to your roots) cannot be grasped with a single gesture; the viewer is invited to explore and experience the artist’s paths of discovery.
