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.

No, this isn’t me, someone else suffers,

I couldn’t stand it. All that’s happened

They should wrap up in black covers,

The streetlights should be taken away…

Night. »
