“Mère et Fils” is the follow-up piece to “L’Amoureuse”, a book published in 2013 by Le Caillou Bleu.
The theme of “L’Amoureuse” was bereavement; I started work on it following the death of my partner, the father of my son.
After the shock of his death, the journey through bereavement was like a convalescence, and I concentrated on my new, shrunken family unit. “Mère et Fils” represents a face-to-face, intense bond, and, in reaction to my situation, it is also about the permanence of femininity and desire, and the return to normal life after a trauma.
