The subject of the video above is of a massive instillation entitled Portrait of Sylvia Elena by the incredible street artist SWOON and fellow artist Tennessee Jane Watson. Both women visited Juarez Mexico, the site of the infamous Juarez Femicide. Since 1993, about 400 women have been killed, all were young, most were raped. There are still more women that have been abducted or are missing. These crimes have never been solved and continue to this day.
The subject of this piece is Sylvia Elena, a 17 year old girl who was one of the first Juarez women to be killed.
