Part 2: ‘Maternality’
Curated by Catherine McCormack 10 January – 15 February 2020
Private view: Thursday 9 January, 6–8pm

‘Maternality’ is the second instalment of the two-part show on maternal politics and embodiment which focuses on reproduction and the materiality of maternal bodies.
Curated by Catherine McCormack, the exhibition finds its starting point in the etymological root of the word “mother” as synonymous of matter (mater/materia in Latin) in a group show exploring female reproductive bodies in terms of material relations, both physical and political.
Works embedding physical substances of reproductive bodies – from breast-milk in Aimee GILMORE’s ethereal fabric banner Milkscapes (2016) to cervical cells in Helen CHADWICK’s Viral Landscape No.3 (1988) – are featured beside fibre sculptures by Carmen WINANT and Robyn LEROY-EVANS who employ fabric as a reflection on the relation between self and other when one body reproduces to form another. Never exhibited before, the works draw on images as diverse as a Renaissance altarpiece by Piero della Francesca to twentieth-century photos of birth.
Annegret SOLTAU’s stitched images of pregnant bodies situate pregnancy as a splitting and restitching of the fabric of the body and individual identity, while the stitched tapestry as a metaphor for both women’s creative labour and material embodiment defines Judy CHICAGO’s The Crowning (1982) from her series The Birth Project. Feminist avant-garde artist Kirsten JUSTESEN’s Torso series (1973) considers the performance of maternal bodies as art objects and the relationship between procreation and artistic production – an established obstacle for the affirmation of women artists.
‘Maternality’ does not only think of woman as nature and primordial fabric of the universe. Helen BENIGSON questions the technologisation of female reproductive bodies with the video PUMP (2017). The material relations of domestic labour and childcare within capitalism is taken up as a theme in Who’s Holding the Baby (1978) by The Hackney Flashers. Another highlight is Eleanor ANTIN’s work Who are we? Where are we going? (2004), from the Roman Allegories series.
