LUCREZIA DE FAZIO - MXCFMNCD
18 kt gold-plated brass, methacrylate
The rate of violence against women in Latin America has had a radical increase in recent years. Impunity and lack of interest in the authorities is latent, as well as the increasing normalization of violence in daily life.
From this situation, the artist developed a series of self-defense jewels titled MXCFMNCD. Whose acronyms could be translated into a kind of abbreviation for Mexico City Feminicides.
From these studies a prototype is proposed that appeals to a dystopian future, where the pieces are activated by the women who carry them to become possible weapons to guarantee their safety.
