Peter Puklus: The Hero Mother - How to build a house

* New or Sealed *

  • £37.00

Puklus deconstructs and questions the dynamics of the pre-established female and male roles: motherhood as an alleged heroic activity and the supposed duty of the father to build and protect the home. His search breaks down the traditional symbols associated with maternal and paternal figures in a playful yet critical way. Outside the confines of the photographic studio, he develops an original visual vocabulary around parental life and issues related to the construction of the family nucleus. Presented and internationally premiered at Images Vevey, Switzerland, the installation reconstructs the everyday life and unfolds in the intimacy of home: in each room, the viewer discovers the complexity of ourselves.
