La verdad de la mentira

Al lector se le llenaron de pronto los ojos de lágrimas,
y una voz cariñosa le susurró al oído:
-¿Por qué lloras, si todo
en ese libro es de mentira?
Y él respondió:
-Lo sé;
pero lo que yo siento es de verdad.

"When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?"

Dany Reede | on Tumblr (Canada)

Dany Reede is a visual artist from Winnipeg, Canada. His drawing, mostly autobiographical, is heavily influenced by street art, stick and poke tattoos. His work, based on his self-perception, contains an undercurrent of deprecation and melancholy:

I have never felt comfortable within the realms of the “conceptual insider art world.” Using art as a method to achieve some sort of social status through intellect is something I can’t grasp, and prefer to use it as a therapeutic device to cope with my - often debilitating - social anxiety and depression. My work exemplifies the struggle between my mind’s habitual cravings for a place, while my body is stuck in another. Through reoccurring imagery and text, I am able to create honest, specific, and autobiographical work about the different routines that help me confront this disconnect.
