This artist edition includes a signed copy of Mothernism, an 17 x 224” riso poster and a one of a kind, painted, silk, 35 x 35" flag-scarf including a pole and holder for display. If ordered before Mother's Day the artist can include a personalized, signed inscription.
At the intersection of feminism, science fiction, and disco, Mothernism aims to locate “the mother-shaped hole in contemporary art discourse.” If the proverbial Mother is perhaps perceived as a persona non grata in the art world, because her nurturing nature is at odds with the hyperbolic ideal of the singular artistic genius, Mothernism amplifies her presence, channeling her energy, complexity, and sublime creative potential in a series of intimate and critical reflections. The resulting collection of letters — dedicated with love from one mother to her dear daughter, sister, mother, and reader — fuse biography, music, art, and history into an auto-theoretical testimony that recalls and redefines the future imperfect.
