Constantina

Intervention on inkjet print, 63x69cm.
2019

During her residence at Pico do Refúgio, Carla Cabanas carried out a research in several photographic archives in São Miguel. Among countless family records, she became interested in the photographs of Luisa Constantina, and this was the starting point for her project. Based on the concept of feedback, as from a camera filming the screen that reproduces the image its capturing, Carla appropriates a photograph of Luisa being photographed, emphasizing the feedback effect of registers and memories.
