Monumento a la madre

(mother's memorial)

2020 | Plasterbandages and Alabaster-plaster

This series of sculptures were created by reproducing the positions I was forced to take and other positions I wish I could have taken to give birth to my daughter. 

For me their parallel characteristics of fragility and hardness materialize that moment in which a woman's body is torn in two to remove its contents... like the eggshells that after being emptied are thrown in the bin.

The three sculptures were part of the installation: waiting room, and was exhibited within my solo exhibition "Antes de la oxitocina" at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Vienna.
