Identity, belonging and memory are at the heart of my artistic work. I research and photographically depict memories, ambivalent feelings and social & cultural powerstructures within themes as pregnancy & birthing, body politics & sexuality, social reproduction & unpaid labour, (maternal) mental health, intergenerational trauma's and the domestic.
My latest work is about pregnancy, birthing and post-partum/maternal mental health. A current theme I’m exploring is the 'Madonna/Whore' discourse.
As an artist*researcher*writer*zinemaker I advocate for womxn who are mothers and artists. Within the arts, the myth of the childless-artist still haunts artists who are/want to be a mxther/caregiver. This ‘ghost' needs to be dismantled to gain equal and justice positions of mxthers within the arts.
With glowing love, Isabelle
