Maya Watanabe

Born in 1983 in Lima, Peru
Lives and works in Madrid, Spain

“In Maya Watanabe’s videos, this stream of words, and silences, of others are beautifully interweaved but not, as it would seem natural, to redefine the question about identity but to resolve it.

It is said, It is silenced, things. What Maya has found in the verbal language is transferred to the visual field. To see makes us subjects of the video. To be subject of a video is to see with the images of others, to whom they don’t belong either.”

Mario Montalbetti
