Scar is a visual search that aims to imagine the city as a living organism, displaying the marks of its development and bringing people together within it. The project uses documentary photography to capture and relate three different expressions of damage; those that symbolise my own stories and troubles, those that carry the stories and troubles of the people of Puebla and those of the city itself. The visual identity of Puebla and its iconography are explored with embroideries made with surgical sutures incorporated into the photographs. The threads therefore become a metaphor of my understanding of Mexico’s historical and social complexity, generosity and development. This work was created during the Art Residency Programme of Arquetopia – Foundation for Development. This Project was exhibited for the first time at the Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh, 2017.
