A sharing, a demo, a discussion, an outcome – Bruno Zambrano’s residency period for UA Miniresidencies culminates in a public event in Museum of Impossible Form where the artist shares some of his process and work. Free admission!
Bruno Zambrano discusses his personal experiences of belonging and not belonging in relation to his second country of origin, Mexico. What is it like to be a Mexican who has lived in Finland all his life and has not fully assimilated the language and cultureof his other country? In his work, Zambrano approaches his own dichotomy between the two countries, a longing that cannot be fully remedied, a longing for his own family. He approaches these feelings, familiar to so many second-generation immigrants, first-hand. At the same time, there is also something more universal in these feelings, a desire to belong that is shared by all. The work focuses on the interplay between dance, video and sound. During his residency, Zambrano explores how the experience of longing can be visualised.
