Back to the mothership! A mother’s body is the universe of the unborn, an inner space they float in like astronauts. The mothership can be big, enveloping, alien, watery, and homey. It’s the time and energy we devote to mothering, and the households we run, steer, and keep afloat. It’s the UFO of unidentified (unpaid, underpaid, uncounted) labour. It’s the earth we call our mother and our home. It’s a title—like a knighthood or a lordship—that we bear with pride, or a torch passed between women and other caregivers. It’s the nest we shelter our children in, then nudge them out of in time. It’s flying saucers, literally! It’s our messes and failures, our inner compasses, our burdens, and our joys. The Artist Mothers at MAWA invite you to an out-of-this-world group exhibition about motherhood.
