nympfs of mrkh


As an art conservator, my work and study lead me to preserve the material essence of the works, restoring them to safeguard their history and memory. This practice has permeated my training as an artist, motivating me to collect not only objects, but also stories that constitute the immaterial culture that must endure and be exhibited as part of our history and collective memory. One of these works, entitled “MRKH Nymphs”, emerged from my research around the condition known as MRKH (Mayer Rokitansky-Küster Hauser).

During 2016-2017, I had the privilege of collecting testimonies from women affected by this condition, which is characterized by the absence of vaginal cavity or uterus, also called infantile uterus. These stories I captured in a handmade fabric book, using scraps of clothing and fabric from some of these women, including my own, as well as those of my mother and sister. This work, a powerful container of experiences, narrating fragments of their lives.

In 2018, I submitted this project as part of my application to the university of fine arts, managing to get third place. Behind each piece of fabric, hide the experiences and struggles of real women, whose stories deserve to be recognized and shared.
