You breathe… the light enters - The Air as an instrument - The air as a bond - The violence of the invisible - It disrupts all of us

Air Supply is a project investigating the relationship between air and the violence of the invisible. That violence is linked to what we normally do not associate with violence and which goes back to what we do not associate as an instrument of cruelty. In this case, the air works as a weapon for femicide worldwide, especially in domestic spaces.

Plants have served as protection elements for women. In an invisible way, women using certain plants can make their attacker sick or even kill them. In this project:

Scent of space

Holly: Use purgative and irritant. Obstruction of the digestive system. Eating the fruit can be deadly in large doses.

Amaryllis: Contains toxins that can cause vomiting, depression, diarrhea, abdominal pain, hypersalivation, anorexia, and seizures.

Lilis/Azucenas: Vomiting, lethargy, tachycardia, and polyuria.

Tulip: Eating the bulb causes indigestion, central nervous system depression, seizures, and cardiac abnormalities.

Chrysanthemum: Contains pyrethrins that can cause gastrointestinal imbalance, depression, and loss of coordination.


Mexico adds 3,462 women murdered in 2021, an average of more than 10 per day, according to updated figures from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP).-El Heraldo, 11/19/2022
