Amaia Molinet and Iratxe Jaio will participate in the collective exposition ‘Lo que nos queda por hablar’
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
The works of the artists Amaia Molinet and Iratxe Jaio will participate in the collective exposition ‘Lo que nos queda por hablar’ in the Museum of Memory and Human Rights from Chile. These works will be exposed until the 7th of April in 2024.
On the one hand, Amaia Molinet will present her work ‘Zirrikutua’ in the collective exposition with the collaboration of Etxepare Euskal Institutua. On the other hand, Iratxe Jaio will participate with her work ‘Bandera Falsa’.
This exhibition features the works of 19 contemporary artists and proposes a reflexive exploration of the historical memory of the Civil War and Franco´s dictatorship in Spain, establishing a dialogue with works by Chilean artists who have dealt with the civil-military dictatorship in Chile. The exhibition presents diverse perspectives that problematise aspects of the past through installations, videos, photographs and paintings, as well as including pieces from the collections of the Museum of Memory and Human Rights.
‘Zirrikutua’ (Amaia Molinet and Eriz Moreno, 2023) will present an artistic project to the public, which is based on an historical cross vision, showing the traces that the Civil War left in Larrabetzu.
This work not only conceives this conflict as a series of historical events, but the analysis also considers both the vision of the area and the personal vision of the authors. Specifically, the vision of the protagonists, a memory that has been passed on by word of mouth from generation to generation, is also combined with the one of Moreno and Molinet. The result of the project is a publication that can be completed with a guided tour.
On the other hand, the artist Iratxe Jaio will participate in the exposition with the work ‘Bandera falsa’ (Iratxe Jaio and Klass van Gorkum, 2023). The starting point of this installation is a reinterpretation of the picture ‘Le Drapeau Noir’ from Magritte, which they discovered during research about the Civil War.
The exposition ‘Lo que nos queda por hablar’ will be open to the public until the 7th of April in 2024 in the Museum of Memory and Human Rights (Santiago, Chile) with free access. The artists that participate in the collective exposition will offer a guided tour of the works on Saturday, 25th November.
The support of Etxepare Euskal Institutua
The Institute has financed the participation of the work ‘Zirrikituak’ from Amaia Molinet and Eriz Moreno with the programme of mobility aids for Basque creators.
One of the main lines of work of Etxepare Euskal Institutua is to promote the international presence of Basque creators and artists. The financial aids for mobility for Basque creators are a fundamental tool for reinforcing the positioning of the Basque cultural and creative sector abroad, increasing its presence and visibility, and enhancing networks with international cultural agents.
