Stitching

A newlywed couple posing in front of City Hall, in a wedding gown and tuxedo, is not a novelty. However, a newlywed couple, scissors in hand, cutting off pieces of their clothing, is shocking. It is moving. It generates questions. This action provokes a reflection on a subject both ancient and still currently relevant: the murder of women in Latin America, violence against women, death and disappearance.
