SP–Arte 2019

Anna Maria Maiolino
“Glu-glu”, 1967

Woodcut
Engraving: Variable dimensions

This woodcut engraving was made starting from Maiolino’s iconic 1966 painting, “Glu Glu Glu…”. The different layers of interpretation that the work enables are what attracts me the most. It is as much essentialist as it is political; it brings the visceral to the surface and also translates a political instability of an epoch; the situation of an immigrant mother who felt silenced by dictatorship, having to digest her own thoughts and feelings which could not be exposed. And 52 years later the works could not be more current and blunt.
