nympfs of mrkh

—“ As an art conservator many times my work and study requires me to make the material culture of an object prevail by conserving & restoring it to preserve its history, its memory. This practice permeated my training as an artist since it forces me to compile stories as part of the immaterial culture that I believe is important to prevail and show as part of the history and collective memory, this artwork is called:" Nymphs MRKH".

Around 2016‑2017 I was able to compile testimonials from women with MRKH (Mayer Rokitansky‑Küster Hauser), which is a condition where there is no vaginal cavity or no uterus or uterus fails to develop, which is known as an infantile uterus. I witnessed the estimation in a fabric book handmade with scraps of clothing and fabric of some of them, of mine, my mother and sister, to join together in this great container that tell a little of their story and that I presented later in my application to the fine arts university in 2018, entering in third place. These are stories of real women.
