The work Usually she is disappointed borrows its title from the radical feminist manifesto, Dialectic of Sex, by Shulamith Firestone, it looks at motherhood, feminism, politics, and the world of work after children.
At night, the artist hunted for photographs, deliberately adopting a ‘kitchen table’ aesthetic. She rephotographed and appropriated images from academic books she was reading, borrowed images from her Facebook feed and other Facebook users, all mothers. The exhibition is a selection from more than 200 images and concentrates on the figure of the Missing Mother in the (art)world.
Exhibition opening / after-party takes place in gallery Jelení (Dukelských hrdinů 25a).
