Sculptor Toym Imao’s Desaparecidos installation shows the emptiness created in every person whose relative or loved one had disappeared without a trace during the Martial Law years in the Philippines. They are left with nothing – no bodies to mourn over, no information to anticipate, no perpetrators to bring to justice, no good memories to remember. Both the missing and the bereaving are victims.
