The work of Maria Renée Morales Lam presents a physical-material and imaginary journey through the city, showing evidence of an intimate relationship between the past and matter, where the function of the artifact is diluted in the act of contemplation. Architectural components are compiled as samples of a public memory underlying a collective imaginary that, without realizing it, we forcefully distort. The older work invites us to reflect on the way in which history is being preserved – what we choose to protect or forget, and how this influences the construction and accelerated transformation of the contemporary city. In his most recent work, he tries to exalt the presence and corporeality of city ornaments forgotten in everyday life. “As an incessant effort to belong somewhere, I draw an invisible map of my daily path, reformulating these symbols that represent moments, objects, places and situations, in an attempt to reconcile my own history in a territory that until recently was unknown.

In this concert, the fado of the Portuguese guitar travels to the frontier with jazz, in dialogue with the piano, in a program of original instrumental music. The themes based on the album “Contos de Cordas” will be presented with new ones created by Luís Coelho with André Gomes. Although influenced by jazz, the duo’s sound maintains a matrix of Portuguese identity that enhances the timelessness of the creations.
