WHEN MY MOTHER ENTERED MY WORK
OPENING NIGHT: JULY 02 | 7 PM
OPEN FROM JULY 3 TO JULY 7 | 10 AM TO 9 PM
The figure of the mother remained an antagonist, embodying a life that the artist actively resisted until she entered her work. Moshtari Hilal learned to reconcile with the otherness of her mother by looking at her like an artist looks at her muse. „When my mother entered my work“ explores the realization of Hilal that in a world of social constructs and neoliberal individualism, there wS nothing more genuine than one‘s origin. Origin was however not equivalent to modern concepts such as the nation-state or geographical categories, but the person who raised and gave birth to the artist. In her work Hilal aims to create a visual language that is informed and shaped by the most subjective in her life - which became her hair, her nose, and her mother.
