Voyage. Sea. Body. Woman. Earth. Salt. Action. Death. Transgression. Paradox. Betrayal. Silence. There are journeys and voyages. The first is a freely chosen route that the traveler wants to take (or a journey that’s the result of an obligation). The second - a voyage - is a geographical and geopolitical crossing whose conditions vary according to human circumstances and according to thousands of different variables. Esculpir el silencio is what happens when individuals - and more precisely women – embark on a voyage because of the pressing need to leave a place of conflict for a desirable, longed for, dreamed of and imagined destination that’s a place of salvation. The conditions of these voyages are usually terrible and the stories about their failures are terrible and well-known. What motivates a woman, often accompanied by young children who depend on her, to embark on a journey that’s bound to fail? What makes her think she won’t and that the ending will be different for her? What is she willing to lose, change, negotiate or let perish to make this voyage successful?
