2018 - 2019
Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands
For most women, motherhood is a joy - most of the time.
But many also experience disappointment, guilt, even anger and fear. Becoming a mum is hard - everybody knows that. But usually we only hear about sleepless nights, not the profound identity shift that accompanies becoming a mother.
Motherhood is a psychological big bang. And yet it’s rare to find emotionally honest conversations about it.
“I Didn’t Want to Be A Mum” by Sophie Ebrard launched during Unseen in Amsterdam (2019), is an immersive exhibition exploring the ambivalent feelings of motherhood.
