Formations I (Exceed the weight of the planet)

Best wishes for 2013...

Project updates:

  • Returning to the studio from travel project in South America.
  • Producing new sculptural & image objects (in the Guayas & Manabi regions of Ecuador)
  • Samples from research texts around cities travelled:

“Another day and night of boat travel down a river, into the Gulf of Guayaquil, and across its swampy delta brought them to the seamy tropical port city of Guayaquil...” ¹

“Between 1503 and 1660, 185,000 kilos of gold and 16m kilos of silver were shipped from Latin America to Europe. The native American leader Guaicaipuro Cuautemoc argues that his people should see this transfer not as a war crime, but as "the first of several friendly loans, granted by America for Europe's development". Were they to charge compound interest on this loan, levied at the modest rate of 10%, Europe would owe the indigenous people of Latin America a stack of gold and silver which exceeded the weight of the planet.” ²

“Decolonization occurred differently in each geopolitical region of the world, and in unique ways in each country ... an outline is necessary, since otherwise the narratives of modern and contemporary art will remain one that is told from the cultural centres of modernity, with art from elsewhere appearing only in so far as it registers at those centres.” ³
