“Finally, more radically, the Portuguese Grada Kilomba presents three short videos of single texts. (…) That was my main discovery at this Biennial of São Paulo, the most powerful and the most compelling.” – LE MONDE
“(…) probably the strongest work of art in this Bienal of São Paulo. Grada’s speech beats like a drum and cuts like a knife.” – Uniquevisitors
“The rhythmic beat is also a prominent feature of Grada Kilomba’s moving installation The Desire Project (2015-16)” – ART-AGENDA
