“A mother can transfer to her son the ambition she has been obliged to suppress in her self” – Sigmund Freud.

The starting point of this exposition is a number of drawings of the mothers of famous historical men combined with a number of short biographical insights from their lives.

In the portraits of the mothers our more than 2000 years of patriarchal rule and reality is seen through the eyes of the Matriarchy here in the form of the motherhood.

The juxtaposition of the portraits together with the insights from their lives in this way creates a form of complex journey into the symbiotic reality that for the better or worse connects all and everything
