WHEN TIME LASTS A TON, 2021

In 2021, two  years after the collapse of the Córrego do Feijão mining dam in Brumadinho-MG, Bárbara Lissa and Maria Vaz return to the site guided by some questions: "What  still reverberates there, even if invisible?" , "What other ways of making an archive, documenting an event in an expanded time? "What persists is photographed subtly, almost blindly: a desolate horizon; thin layers of ore; contaminated water; abandoned houses; under growth and grass that hide the mud. The analog process of developing the negatives creates a local testimony: the film was developed with a mixture of the chemicals, iron ore dust and collected local water, which is currently not drinkable, in the face of high concentrations of heavy metals. The photographs therefore reveal not only images of the place, but their own materiality, printed on the negative. An invisible landscape is printed on them, which tries to capture something as if it were "hovering in the air "or under our feet. Shroud images of a tragedy far from a solution that minimally repairs the affected families
