Narcomensajes by Teresa Margolles
Amazing work, she embroiders text on cloth that has been stained with blood from the victims of drug related crimes in Mexico.  The text itself has been appropriated from messages and threats drug cartels leave around disputed territories or with the bodies of their victims.
She also has made jewelry with glass fragments from windshields found in sites after cartel confrontations.
