With his book Ana Guedes gives insight into her artwork: 7 Volume Edition N 13 007/1448.30'07". Her work echoes a multitude of personal and political references modulated into sound and sculpture. This particular excerpt from Nausea, Sartre’s (first and) foremost philosophical novel, has been on her mind for quite some time. She knows it from a Portuguese edition that belonged to her father’s treasured collection, and that is now part of her installation. This collection − composed of several books by Marxists thinkers and a number of jazz and rock music records from the 1960-80s − traces the life of a family split between Angola, Portugal and Canada in the wake of the 1974 Carnation Revolution. This family heirloom marked Guedes’ cultural and ideological upbringing and has become a fertile point of departure for her multidisciplinary practice. Exploring and digesting these fragments of history and memory becomes a way to reflect on the personal, social, and natural ramifications of established power structures.
