Description

On October 30th 1974, Jacqueline Drouilly and Marcelo Salinas Eytel were abducted from their home in Santiago, just over a year after General Pincohet seized power in Chile in a coup d'état. Jacqueline's sister Nicole created this to show the stages of the search, from looking for her to moving towards realisation that they would never see her again. She commends those who pause to view her quilt. “… I thank them from now and forever the passing minutes they dedicate to observe the quilt and unite to me in thinking about Jacqueline.”
