Image of my mother – Image of myself
From April 22 until June 17 2018 the exhibition Image of my mother was on show in Huis als museum, Amersfoort.
Participants were visual artists: Annemiek Vera, Japke Gorter, Susan Bink, Mieke Vera and Krijnie Beyen and the poets Wibo Kosters Kalmann, Jolies Hey, Hanneke Kiel-De Raadt, Daantje Elisabeth Woudenberg and Jolanda Oudijk.
They represent and articulate the image that they have of their mother that may have changed in the course of the preparatory period that the artists have gone through in search of the core of the Image of their mother. As parents are the source of who we are but also the entrance to our lineage embedded in culture, they also personify our image of man women relationships and associated collective assumptions.
“The role of the artist is exactly the same as the role of the lover. If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you don’t see.” ~ James Baldwin
