"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"Nduwayezu actually saw his mother and father killed with machetes. His reaction was to remain silent for approximately four weeks. He couldn’t speak. His eyes were the saddest eyes I had ever seen, so I wanted to represent that and speak about his silence- because his silence refers to the silence of the world community that let this happen."
- Alfredo Jaar
