“Sonos Falados”, an artistic activism project of the Democratic Movement of Women, to raise awareness of domestic violence and violence against women. It started with 104 pillows, many of which were decorated by women victims of domestic violence (some living in shelters), to which many others have been added, in each place where she passes, touring the country. The challenge was and still is to think of the pillow as a depository object of dreams, fears, anxiety and ambitions, and thus leave on it the shapes that circumvent concerns and express dreams on the way to freedom. The result, in addition to being aesthetically beautiful, contains an immense variety of moving but determined messages, showing that women want to overcome the discrimination and violence to which they are still subjected.
