Exploring Motherhood and Womanhood: “Straw for Nothing” Exhibition

Set against the backdrop of the historical tower, this exhibition delves deep into the intricacies of motherhood and womanhood, offering an exploration of their personal experiences.

Scheduled to open on the 4th and 5th of May, with a public-private view on May 3rd from 6-8pm, “Straw for Nothing” is an exhibition, where the unseen work and experiences of the domestic sphere take centre stage. Hounham and Poingdestre peel back the layers of daily life, revealing the often-overlooked aspects of motherhood and womanhood that extend beyond mere physical tasks.

At the core of the exhibition is an exploration of emotional labour, the balancing act of managing relationships, resolving conflicts, and providing emotional support. Through a series of artworks, the artists shed light on the complexities inherent in these roles, offering a raw and intimate glimpse into their own journeys.

Each piece serves as a testament to the profound impact of motherhood and womanhood, inviting viewers to reflect on their own experiences and connections to these universal themes.

Whether you’re a parent, a caregiver, or simply someone navigating complexities in today’s world, “Straw for Nothing” offers a space for introspection, empathy, and solidarity. Don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in this thought-provoking exhibition.
