Motherhood, installation, ready-made, red string, 2021-2023
The installation project Motherhood consists of eight pieces that explore motherhood through the symbolic use of red string, representing the inescapable responsibilities of motherhood, and the blood between the artist and her daughter, weaving its way through each stage of the journey of accepting the new identity. Through this simple yet powerful material, Wang Chen's work explores the complex emotions of navigating motherhood through the challenges of this transformative time in a woman's life.
