Since very early in her career, Anaida Hernández (1954) has done prints, drawings, installations, and community projects relating to the ongoing struggles for human rights. Her concise messages leave no room for doubt; her work has always been conceptual yet clearly dealing with social and political issues. The point of departure for her installation Till Death Do Us Part is the research done by journalist Carmen Enid Acevedo in the archives of the Puerto Rico Police Department, in which Acevedo learned that between January of 1990 and June of 1993, a hundred cases of women killed by their husbands or boyfriends were reported.
