Tena Lazaravic | Alfama Water Bodies

Program: Sound Installation and Performance

Status: collaboration with Jelena Pavlovic

Location: Lisbon, Portugal

Date: 2016


THE-WATER-BODIES is a site-specific sound work, inspired by the poem found next to the fountain, dedicated to light and water. Our priority was to enable the memory of Alfama’s inhabitants’ relations with water that their ancestors for centuries used to have.We focus the work around the fountain in the Judiaria Street, treating the space as an empty (“void”), using the geometry of it. Three sound passages that lead to the fountain will enable the  the waters’  rhythmic, absent character to penetrate the body. We will invite the public to spend a night  by the fountain,  and absorb the aquatic rhythms.
