Not only only sounds can be violent: silence, in certain moments, is the most violent of the attacks you can use.

Christina West seems to understand so well this concept: her art is made of sculptures static in their instants, freezed in a moment that will never turn back.

And that’s a sort of violence: the figures are all motionless, fixed in the place where they’re put, stopped in an expression for the rest of their life, not having another option and constricted in their silence.

That’s the metaphor of the human being in our society: we’re violated in our quotidian by advertisings, social networks, bombs made by images and videos, not having a moment for ourselves, constricted to stay silent, like Christina’s sculptures, and freezed in a time that will never turn back.
