Mère et Fils

@ de Gelas, Anne



Presentation by Éditions Loco :    [translation L'Ascenseur Végétal]

"After the shock of the death of her partner, the father of her son, Anne De Gelas focused on the new shrunken family unit. Mère et Fils (Mother and Son) is this face-to-face relationship, this intense bond, and - in the heart of this situation - the permanence of feminity and desire, the return to life.

Through her texts, drawings and photographs, she reveals the complexity of this relationship, the bond and the violence, solitude and tenderness. The evolution, induced by this face-to-face,is a very different experience for a son/child and a woman/mother; and life goes on, years go by, with physical changes for him and for her."
