Seeds

Seeds entails the exhuming of a 2 year old child's full but dismantled skeleton. Parallel to this action, the skeleton is reconstructed while a forensic anthropologist continues digging up each piece. This work serves as a reflection on the intentional violence against children, practiced by the army, beginning with case 4017, en Las Majadas, Aguacatán, Huehuetenango, Guatemala, in 1982.
