Diego Fellmann – Lopo

“This work focuses on the last fragments of memories of one of my relatives, Lopo. Initially destined for a political career, he decided to follow a different path. Leaving his family home with his savings, he journeyed through the deserts and salt flats of the Altiplano, seeking his own way.

Several years later, my father found his trace in a hotel where they had recorded some songs that Lopo had composed, drawing inspiration from his journey. After that, he mysteriously disappeared and there is almost no trace of him left, except for these recordings.

Using models and landscapes, I explore the flaws of memory and their volatile nature and attempt to recreate a portrait of him based on the rare and last memories that my father and mother have of him.“
