"Like a 'lamb in wolf's clothing,' Pablo Helguera uses the exoteric mechanisms of historical erudition to lure us to his magical island of the Ourobourians.But right about the time we lose our footing on the land's slippery shores-when we begin to wonder if the artist has gleaned an esoteric tradition for more than just source material for his island's symbols and nomenclature, when we start to navigate his land with the non-verbal hunches of the alchemists' score, and call into question the artifices we employ to gather the world around us-we realize Helguera has really taken us on a journey to another land altogether, the most forbidden of places: the self."
-Lise Patt, founder and director of the Institute of Cultural Inquiry, Los Angeles
"Pablo Helguera is a splendid liar, a first-class storyteller, a curious mind constantly in search of stories, a creator of parallel universes and impossible characters living in credible situations, which invariably probe our certainties, intuition and knowledge."
- Naief Yehya, writer and critic
