The exhibition "Scars" brings together a dozen portraits of liver transplant recipients exuding joy in the lobby of the Outpatient Consultation area at Bellvitge Hospital. Additionally, the exhibition features other photographs where these inspiring individuals proudly exhibit their scars, which are adorned with delicate strokes of gold leaf paint. These scares serve as powerful symbols of their resilience, triumph over adversity, and the joy that accompanies the gift of a renewed life through transplantation. The exhibition will remain open to the public until the 22nd of May, providing a limited opportunity to witness this compelling display.
