Looiersgracht 60 is delighted to present Imprinted Mater, the first major institutional exhibition of work by Dutch-Argentine artist Aimée Zito Lema. Zito Lema has created site-specific installations and video works that explore the transferal of memory and the ways in which history is recorded and remembered. She plays with the possibilities and choices involved in the documentation of an event and how this can be manipulated or interpreted. The artist uses her own memory as a personal archive, alongside images associated with the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, who lost their children during the dictatorship in Argentina between 1976 and 1983. Combining personal experiences with pressing socio-political issues, Zito Lema creates poignant and immediate artwork that grapples with questions about the political and human functions of art.

During the opening, at 18.30 hrs, there will be a live dance performance that builds on the video works exhibited. The dancers, Valentina Nelissen and Tosca Zabalza Beñaran are the mother and daughter duo who also worked with artist Aimée Zito Lema to produce the video works in the exhibition. Imprinted Mater - a score for mother and child explores the relationship between the body and memory. Through these video works, the artist questions the possibilities and choices involved in the documentation of an event and how this can be manipulated or interpreted.
