Whether women are mothers or not, motherhood is the cornerstone
of a gender-based social organization. Maternity representation
remains marginal for centuries when women have no place as artists.
Today, advertising and medical extension offer approaches to
(non)motherhood that are most often watered down and consensual,
far from the feelings of women and the many situations encountered,
which range from fear to ecstasy.
With Delfine Ferré, we have chosen to explore this subject
through visual proposals - drawings, installations, photographs,
texts...- to compose a polyphonic and polysemic story that everyone
is invited to discover and appropriate.
The conception of becoming a mother as a state close to the
firmament acquired in the moment, by instinct, is to be fought
(...) for ourselves, in ourselves.(...)
No child will be born alive and healthy physically and psychically
if it has not been carried by our humanity.
