On the plate is a painting from the series "Mother", which was drawn in 2019. The drawings are a visualization of the artist's thoughts about her own body, as a kind of shell for carrying the future life. An attempt to realize and try on own skin as the skin of a future mother. An attempt to understand and predict what motherhood is... and also to realize whether it is possible and able for her own body and health to give a birth. Also, these drawings are a form of sublimation over the topic of artist's relationships with her own mother.
ABOUT ARTIST Maria Kulikovska is an Ukrainian-Swedish multimedia artist, architect, actionist-performer, researcher and lecturer in exile. She was born and grew up in Kerch on the edge of the Crimea peninsula, where she cannot return since the illegal annexation of the peninsula by Russia. The artist explores the transformation of her own body, watches the vulnerability of her body, and actively creates preconditions for feminist and queer discourses. Creativity of Maria Kulikovska is a radical combination of performances and sculptures, watercolors and old papers, physicality and substance, destruction and creation, complex symbols and understandable metaphors, powerlessness of screaming and power of material, weakness or careful and total.
