Absence-Presence is the natural evolution and the third piece in a series of works by Alejandra Glez, ‘Mar de fondo’ (Backdrop sea) (2017). This series prompts inconvenient truths and unanswered questions. In it, the bodies of models representing deceased women, the victims of gender violence, femicide, women trafficking and illegal immigration, float naked on the sea surface until they sink. At first, their silhouette remains visible. Then, it slowly fades away thus symbolizing how most of the violence against women tragically fall into oblivion.
