Gypsophila y todas las flores
Photo documentation of performance art
40 x 30 cm


Zarahlena, a Berlin-based artist, presents “Gypsophila y todas las flores,” a potent photo documentation of her performance art, at the Salon de Refusées.

Through this work, she confronts femicide and censorship with a ritualistic protest deeply rooted in Latin American experiences, yet resonant globally. The performance, now documented at 40cm x 30cm, was initially censored for being “too controversial,” but this only fueled the urgency of Zarahlena’s message: the irrevocable consequence of violence and the silencing of voices.

The piece stands as a stark reminder and a call to dialogue about the critical issues of femicide and artistic expression. It symbolizes the body as a battleground for resistance, a testament to the painful realities many face, and a question posed to society: How do we address uncomfortable truths through art?


The "Salon de Refusées" is an art initiative inspired by the historic 1863 Paris exhibition. It's a platform celebrating female (read) artists who've faced rejection, turning exclusion into empowerment. Our project is dedicated to showcasing art in its most authentic form, creating a space where diverse voices and stories are seen and revered. Join us in this artistic uprising, where each piece adds to our resilience and the unyielding spirit of creativity.
