“Like an artist, the Mother is wise in her creation. The Mother not only creates a life, but also a continuous matrix of experiences between Mother and Child.”

Motherhood is a long-term process full of a myriad of complex feelings, a complexity captured by Taiwanese artist Annie Wang.

In 2001, she took pictures of her pregnant belly signed and dated, the way an artist signs a canvas. One of these images became the start of a project still ongoing. Since that first image, Wang has created a full series of layered photographs of mother and son, her photography upholding motherhood as a creative enterprise.

This presentation includes the premiere of the newest image in the series.
