When exile is internal, that which is intimate is denied. The depersonalization or even dehumanization of a being takes on many aspects that are not necessarily the fact of individuals making History(ies) but also the fact of individuals transmitting History(ies), which although it is always taught in the singular form, is in fact plural.

But while memory can disappear, the impression, the one written in the flesh, is indelible. It is transmitted in spite of time and place.

It is in the folds of what is intimate that the impression is revealed and summons the individual to manifest it.

And when the past becomes real time again despite its forced marriage to silence, it becomes likeness and image must become repentance.

Letras y Notas: Spanish radio broadcast by Eva Santamaría

Some time ago, I had the pleasure to be invited by Eva Santamaría to participate in Letras y Notas, her radio broadcast on Arts and Culture: http://letrasynotas.com/?page_id=251 

Letras y Notas is a great experience as Eva offers the artists un great opportunity to share the intimate aspects of their work. She recently launched a new website, which I am happy to share today.

 

Participar en Letras y Notas ha sido vivir una hora y media durante la cual Eva Santamaría me ha devuelto el tiempo. Sin prisas, paso a paso, hemos recorrido mis pinturas. No sé de ningún otro programa que le de tanto tiempo y espacio a un artista para abrir y dar a conocer su mundo, o que le permita explicar tan detenidamente en qué consiste su experiencia creativa.

Hubo un lugar: Personal involvement, creative process and scientific value

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hubo un lugar [there was a place] is an art project and an art research on the potential of the investigation of individual cases to progressively build a collective and composite memory. It starts from a site specific work in Spain, which in turn starts from the testimony of a former Spanish republican refugee (see:

https://senso-comune.com/2014/04/24/hubo-un-lugar-witness-1-juan-2/ – https://senso-comune.com/2014/04/24/hubo-un-lugar-witness-1-juan-2/).

 

I will focus on the question of the reconciliation between the objective and subjective approaches within an art and research project that embraces testimony, historical research, creative process and personal involvement, and I will envisage potential methods for the purposes of such reconciliation.

William Kentridge on Memory and how we deal with it

Interviewed by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, William Kentridge says:

All my work is part of a single project. I don’t see a great shift. In Il Ritorno d’Ulisse I was looking at the body as a metaphor for our relationship to memory and the unconscious, acknowledging that there are things happening under the surface, which we hope will be well contained by our skin. We hope that our skin will not erupt, that parts of us will not collapse inside. The body in this sense is other to us; we shepherd it along like an ox, hoping it will come quietly to market and not run away. In recent works such as stereoscope I’m interested in the co-existence of all those contradictory strands, and what it means to synthesize them into one subjectivity.

Stereoscope is about the cost of trying to bring these disparate parts of oneself together.

In Cameron, Christov-Bakargiev, Coetzee. “William Kentridge” (1999) London, Phaïdon, p.23.

The CAC of Málaga (Spain) is exhibiting Kentridge’s work until 13 May 2012. I just can’t wait to go, see it and meditate. (http://cacmalaga.org/?p=5046)
