The Mother and Other Plays
Install of The Mother and Other Plays at Susan Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Los Angeles, CA, 2013
An adaptation of the “The Mother” by Bertolt Brecht, the play was performed in its theatrical installation in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, in solo exhibitions at Gallery 400, University of Illinois, Chicago and Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, and as a stand-alone play in the American Realness festival at Abrons Arts Center in New York. The piece includes original masks, drawings, and a video backdrop. The play is paired in exhibition with the video work “Universal Declaration of Infantile Anxiety Situations Re ected in the Creative Impulse,” both exploring the condition of motherhood.
