CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 10/12/2021

'Wangechi Mutu: I Am Speaking, Are You Listening?' is a new release this week!

"Sentinel IV" (2019) is reproduced from Wangechi Mutu: I Am Speaking, Are You Listening?, the most comprehensive monograph ever published on the artist, which accompanies the exhibition currently on view at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor museum. Mutu writes, “I create as a way of reinvigorating myself by replacing and reworking images and ideas that never fully represented me and the women and the people I was born from and who made me—the women who worked so hard to feed me and guide me and to give me space to exist. My legacy is in my work and how much I want it to speak of my role on this earth and of my respect for womanhood. I put a lot of love and hope and earth and dignity and feminine energy into every piece I make so that I can awaken the power within, for each and every one of us. I want people to feel how incredible our role as a human species is. How important it is to be a humane human. How significant it is that we are all from the same family in Africa. How important all the soil and the pigments and the bones and the leaves and the paper and the bacteria and the water are, and how much they speak on our behalf about us—if we speak on their behalf for them. I create with material that speaks to me, materials that I can transform and rename.”
