In this project I worked with different women in 4 countries, Mexico, Guatemala, Peru and Colombia. Topando Pared represents the current women’s situation in Latin America in which we have been erased, isolated and our voices have been silenced.
This project aims to stand out our identity, our importance and our role in society; but it also points to question about women’s current position in a patriarchal community.
The name of this project comes from a Spanish expression “Topar con pared” that reflects a physical and a mind state in which it is impossible to advance or go backwards.
This is how being a women in Latin America feels like.
