Visionaries (object) | 2012



In this object, related to the installation that has the same title, I gather photographs around my maternal great-grandmother on her deathbed: a beautiful image from the 1930s. All other slides refer to important moments in the lives of other women, all descendants of this legendary figure, which we call Mãe Velha [Old Mother].
