In our second year, we’re featuring over 100 artists from 14 countries, with work including the subjects of self-portraiture, environment, emotions, and state of being.

Everyday Rituals

The professional life of a woman who becomes a mother is not the easiest. In the art world, motherhood happens to be stigmatized.
Currently, the woman’s scope of responsibilities grows to an enormous size. Her role has expanded: she has to be a heroine, idealized by handbooks, and commercials. In effect, a contemporary woman lasts in a permanent conflict – inner – with herself and outer – striving to meet the requirements imposed on her by society.
I’m interested in the topic of motherhood, everyday rituals connected with it and problems of woman-mother-artist. On the picture “Everyday rituals” I show a woman in ordinary, ugly slippers, who wants to keep the right rhythm of duties.
