Clara Amaral

She gave it to me I got it from her

Clara Amaral presents a book that is a choreography about three generations of women in her family and what they pass on to each other.


She gave it to me I got it from her
a poem that choreographs her hands and voice
her voice that reads out loud
the book
becoming script
becoming performance
becoming archive


the permanence of her voice in the book
in the book
the presence and absence of their names


— Clara Amaral

About the artist

Clara Amaral works with text and performance. Her artistic practice is situated in an interdisciplinary perspective, questioning what it means to be a reader, to be a writer, aiming to expand existing modes of reading and writing. Central to her practice is the investigation of innovative publishing modalities and the performative aspect of writing and language through an intersectional feminist approach.
