I intervene in the external museum space with an installation, exactly in the place of the stones, in the tray at the entrance of the Museum, with large, empty, black chairs that allude to the absence of so many murdered, tortured and disappeared women.
This installation remains on display throughout the exhibition until August, as a remnant of absence and a silent testimony of stories, where impunity is constant.
The uninhabited chairs are related to a performance, which was held on April 14, on the esplanade of the Museum.

I invited women who were former political prisoners, tortured and violated, to act with me in the museum and on public streets, to express their stories of pain and resistance, achieving a synthesis, which came together in a specific word for each one.
It is an introspective dialogue, the absence and the presence in tension. I propose a sensitive space for meeting and reflection.
