Domestic violence not always leaves visible traces on the body, even if it leaves deep signs on the victim.
Invisible signs are the most difficult to wash away. It’s hard to get rid of something that is ingrained in the mind. IN/VISIBLE TRACES is a collection of four soaps: blood, sperm, hair and ash soap. Four violence ingredients in a purifying object to create a strong contradiction in order to stir people’s consciences.
The aim is to translate a first felling of disgust, astonishment and repulsion in awareness and realisation.
