“During her life she was in Rivera’s shadow. She was framed as the ‘Wife of the Master Mural Painter [who] Gleefully Dabbles in Works of Art’, as the patronizing headline of the Detroit News proclaimed in February 1933. Today, Rivera is known as Frida’s husband.”
Gannit Ankori, Frida Kahlo

“All forms of hybridization – whether they are mythical amalgamations of animal and human beings, offspring of intermarriage or interpenetrating multicultural configurations – imply a form of trespass, an act of transgression. They often involve the rupturing of boundaries and the breaking of taboos. Moreover, hybrids (from satyrs to androgynes to vampires) have always been viewed as outsiders. Their very being embodies the threat of chaos, since they challenge the contours that define normative and so-called pure states of being.”
Gannit Ankori, Frida Kahlo

“The ‘unsharable’ nature of pain, Scarry goes on to argue, triggers a chain reaction that isolates the bearer of pain and frequently leads to a lack of compassion, alienation and often even cruelty on the part of those who are not afflicted and lack the capacity to acknowledge, let alone comprehend its existence.”
Gannit Ankori, Frida Kahlo
