Regina José Galindo: Seeds


Photo/Foto: Marlène Ramírez-Cancio


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.


Regina Galindo has participated in exhibitions such as the 49th and 51st Venice Biennales; II Moscow Biennial; I Auckland Triennial; Venice-Istanbul; I Canary Islands Art and Architure Biennial; IV Valencia Biennial; III Albania Biennial, Tirana; II Prague Biennial; III Biennial of Lima, Peru; I Festival of Corporeal Art, Venezuela and IX Festival of Performance ExTeresa, México City.
