On one of my trips to Luanda for an unrealised artistic residency, in the midst of the confusion of fervent ideas, I idealised human fragments. "Purga Minha" is a catharsis of a path travelled between two shores, in the incessant search for the third shore. In this minimal journey we find fragments of stories adrift, in an attempt to trying to fit them into some empty space. Every day there is hope, but it comes up against the bulky story-making machine, and at the same time it is the narrative of defragmenting history with small stories.
