“Inside us there is something that has no name, that something is what we are.”

Jose Saramago.

Silence and memory are mutually respectful friends, if one reads enough Saramago.

SILENCE AND MEMORY – 23 Nobel Prizes in Literature (“Exposição Silêncio e Memória – 23 Prémios Nobel de Literatura”) is a multimedia art exhibit consisting of photographs and literary readings dedicated to Jose Saramgo and other Nobel-winning authors of recent memory.
Here’s how the organizers describe it:
“The Lisbon City Council and the José Saramago Foundation inaugurate on December 10 the exhibition “SILENCE AND MEMORY – 23 Nobel Prizes in Literature,” with photographs by Kim Manresa and texts by Xavi Ayén, curated by Miguel Ángel Invarato. The exhibition is part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Nobel Prize for Joseph Saramago .
Torreão Poente will host more than 160 photographs and excerpts from interviews conducted at 23 Nobel Prizes in an atmosphere that replicates the complicity and intimacy that was generated between artists and writers in a work begun in 2005. Kim Manresa tells us in images – with his documentary style, committed and human – what can be shown and only what can be said, silence can be extremely concise. It is in this silence that, as we contemplate memory in an image, we find ourselves.”
