Consuelo’s daughter Victoria was brutally murdered in Mexico City. The Birthmark visualizes the mother’s inexpressible pain in blurry, abstract images, which become concrete only selectively: in macro-recordings of fleshy scar tissue and threatening pointy spikes that emphatically drill into not only the viewers’ eyes, but also their bosom.
