Adopting part of the title from Jorge Luis Borges' The book of imaginary beings, Seres Imaginários, by Carla Cabanas (1979, Lisbon), is an exhibition-installation that opens the doors, on the one hand, to the private world of the artist's memories and, on the other hand, to a speculative space of what (the constructions of) those memories could be. Continuing her investigations on the places of memory(s) and of photographic images, particularly family albums that she finds or acquires, in the construction of identity narratives, in Seres Imaginários, Carla Cabanas uses exclusively and, for the first time, photographs of herself and of her family in which she intervenes to create new characters and meanings.
