Lemon Tree


Lemon Tree




CATALOGUE TEXT
A biography told by a deserted room. The colour nuances succeed each other like the stages of life, bathing the furniture and plants in the light of memories. The room seems to react organically to time leaps. Experiences of three generations of Joana Silva’s family form the core of the main protagonist, described by the director as an “unknown family member whose body was assembled from fragments of my own.” The smallest objects were animated with a lot of texture.

Nadja Rademacher
