plaster, wood, LED, found objects
This work is a surrealist interpretation of ideas from Donald Winnicott\\\’s essay \\\”Maternal Preoccupation\\\” refers to a psychoanalytical essay by D.W. Winnicott titled \\\”Primary Maternal Preoccupation\\\”. This essay outlines a theory in which a mother and child are extremely sensitive to one another within the first two postnatal weeks. Having functioned as a single body for nine months, there is a psychological phenomena between mother and child immediately after birth, poetic in the sense that it is as though the two inhabit a mutual mind space, though no longer physically joined. The title itself makes reference to a symbol of fertility in early art \\\”Venus of Willendorf\\\”.
