chains of silence

2010 / 2012

In memory of children, girls and women victims of silence.

Silence can have many forms: it could be expected by people's culture, by ignorance, power or religious fanaticism; it could be charged with aggression and sexual abuse. It could be imposed by mafia or men's clan justice, who requires women's obedience and acquiescence.
Dedicated to women, girls and children rebelling against all silences, fighting with courage. And who dying in the name of the freedom denied.
