    214322- Kino Night met Aimée Zito Lema

    Within the framework of Hoogtij #77, Page Not Found presents a Kino Night with the film and publishing work by Aimée Zito Lema. The work “214322” was developed during the Eye Artist-in-Residence programme, commisioned by the Eye Filmmuseum Collection Centre. Zito Lema investigated the borders of the archive and based on a selection of orphan, amateur and unidentified films, she created a new work (film, sound and photography), questioning concepts of classification, categorization, and selection.

    ‘214322’ reflects on archives as fragmentary cuttings of a possible world, and explores analogue and digital processes of film making. Images are colored by means of tinting, a coloring technique distinctive of the silent cinema, and technical indications, in the form of punch-hole typography and Kodak edge codes, are made part of the film image in the form of animations. The title of the work ‘214322’ refers to the catalogue entry of the work in the Eye collection database.
    The work consists of a 25 minute silent film, a sound piece, and a series of printed film-stills.

    Alongside the screening, we are presenting “OUR RAGS MAGAZINE” – a collaborative project by Aimée Zito Lema and Elisa van Joolen that investigates transformative processes, proposing new forms of collective production aimed at the reuse of discarded clothing and textiles. The project and resulting magazine question consumer behaviour and its relationship to the world in which we live. Further expanding the potential of recycled material, Our Rags Magazine is a magazine where the pages not only show clothing, but actually are clothing.

    Visual artist Aimée Zito Lema (Amsterdam, 1982) engages in her practice with questions around social memory and the body as an agent of resistance. Zito Lema studied at the University of the Arts (UNA), Buenos Aires, the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and holds a Master degree in Artistic Research from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.
