4-7 September

Twenty-Six Mothers originally developed in 2011 for the (AEAF), Australian Experimental Art Foundation extended a single image of mother and daughter repeated 26 times. The repetition focused on true and felt effects of an inter-subjective lived experience between mother and daughter, incorporating symbolic forms that reflected a continual ‘building’ and conditioning of an ‘imagined’ state of being. For this exhibition, six images from the original series offered the viewer the opportunity through thoughts and reflections, to respond in writing (on separate cards provided) a personal or professional response to the theme of Twenty-Six Mothers, specifically image #6.
