Alma Leiva, San Pedro Sula Tiene Cuerpo de Mujer ( San Pedro Sula Has the Body of a Woman)

San Pedro Sula Tiene Cuerpo de Mujer ( San Pedro Sula Has the Body of a Woman) is a large-scale collage which examines gender violence in the city of San Pedro Sula, Honduras in the last two years, based on specific case studies. Taking that research as the starting point, QR codes corresponding to specific spots where acts of violence have been committed against women will be placed along a map of the city, each of which offers the viewer specific information about one of the victims. The hand-sewn toe tag shaped collage will be created by establishing a personal relationship with the victims through everyday actions and intimate rituals that will directly affect the materials of the piece.
