This is the video documentation of the two performances designed to compliment the Silent Silhouette installation to commemorate the International Day Against Domestic Violence. Each of the 18 silhouettes represent a woman who was killed as a result of domestic abuse in Trinidad for 2008. Michelle Isava intercedes for these victims by screaming out their numbers and by giving them each a flower both to mock the practices that flowers given to honour romantic relationships and to honour the dead. This common link is an ominous one that is meant to make one reconsider the promise to love that is often taken for granted until faced with the real horror that vile crimes are often committed against individuals the culprit was committed to loving.
