"In 1522, amid the ruins of the Aztec empire's capital, Tenochtitlan, a boy was born to an Amerindian woman named Malinche. This woman is often viewed as both the great betrayer of Mexico as well as one betrayed herself by the stewards of colonialism. The child's father was the infamous conquistador Hernán Cortés and this boy would come to be known as one of the first mestizos (mixed race) of Mexico. Martín Cortés would become a shadow figure living on the fringes of history and as such his story represents a biographical curio.
.
Burdened by the heavy hand of its own antiquity, Mexico is also a shadow seeking the light of historical analysis, and Martín Cortés serves as the ideal symbolic mirror from which it can cast its reflection. But like so much of Mexican history (or at least our attempts to understand it), Cortés' life remains mostly hidden under a veil of resistance and obscurity." - David Hellman.

"History is wonderful, but nebulous; hard to fathom, but even harder to 'see'... This project is my attempt to look history in the face [...] and to see the ways in which the past has been passed down to us." - Drew Gardner. ▪

I had an interesting conversation yesterday with a man who'd come out to repair the alarm in my house. I asked him who he thought the sculptures in my living room represented, and he made quite accurate assumptions. He pointed to El Mestizo and said, "That's definitely the grandson of Bartholomew Diaz", and then he observed my Krotoa sculpture for a while before he concluded that "She must be Sarah Baartman's cousin." I think it's great that someone who has no knowledge of historical context of my work can still recognise the broader subject matter just by looking at it. I'm happy that it creates this kind of dialogue. ▪

"In my opinion, art from Africa remains still largely burdened by negative social, political and economic realities from its mother continent, hence, is unable to be judged by its own merit and without negative bias or condescending patronage. However, Africans must take the responsibility upon themselves to project their own art and learn to value them as one of their greatest cultural exports." - Peju Alatise. ▪

"The idleness of a passenger, my isolation amongst all of these men with whom I had no point of contact; the oily and languid sea, the uniform sombreness of the coast, seemed to keep me away from the truth of things, within the toil of a mournful and senseless delusion." - Joseph Conrad, 'Heart of Darkness'. ▪

"Martín is separated from his mother at a very early age. He will barely know her because when he is 6 he sails with his father to Spain. For the next 40 years, there is little documentary evidence that he even exists, but we do know that Spain will have its influence through Martín's admission into the Order of Santiago and his tutelage at the royal court. Martín also becomes a respected warrior in the service of both Carlos V and Felipe II." - Anna Lanyon.
