Installation, 2012

The work is a portrait of a mother. It is about her lived experience and her interior life.

The living room was built to contain her feelings, with the walls programmed to reveal them based on the proximity of the audience. The wallpaper, patterned from another portrait of the mother five months pregnant with her second set of twins, offers an abstracted glimpse of her. The books and the photographs are hers.

Is she there underneath the mothering and the obligations and the sacrifices? Is this her? What is she thinking?
