The exhibition is the result of the artist conducing 100 ceremonies with domestic violence survivors from New York City. The ceremonies involve symbolic gestures of women recognizing, releasing and transforming their silent paint into "divine breath." The works include ceramics, photography and text. This exhibition takes from a previous exhibition, Halito
Divino, a project Rumié did in Cartagena, Columbia six years ago.
The idea here is to provide a transformative experience for women and increase awareness of the blight of domestic violence. A partner in this event is Safe Horizon, a leader in domestic violence victim's assistance. The organization
invited women involved in their programs to participate.
Rumié was born and lives in Cartagena.
