> DESCRIPTION

Through disturbing memories and narratives, the works of Pilar Acevedo take us back to an age of innocence, where "loss" is a constant reality. With the union of poetry and sound, Acevedo recreates countless memories from the childhood of women through the fusion of fragments, pieces, and layers of diverse materials. These memories manifest themselves as paintings and assemblages that at first glance, seem peaceful. However, once we delve into them, the characters stare back at us with hollow eyes and wonder, "Is this my guardian angel or monster, are these my saints or demons?"
