Francis Alÿs' installation of his collection of Saint Fabiola paintings. Fabiola became the patron saint of both nurses and abused women. These small paintings where probably purchased or made for personal veneration, most likely by nurses or abused women seeking inner peace or strength. When Belgian artist Alÿs moved to Mexico some thirty years ago, he started collecting these canvases at flea markets. On display are close to three hundred of these canvases.
