“The current generation of artists often deliberately use the female perspective, making work about motherhood, intimacy, strength and vulnerability, and also about how political power structures shape female identity. Modersohn-Becker struggled with the choice between being an artist and being a mother.In a sculpture made almost a century later, Femmy Otten (b. 1981) attempts almost literally to find a balance between pregnancy and creation.Florence di Benedetto (b. 1975) displays the scar of birth as a priceless jewel, the only scar that produces life. Many of the works in this room articulate mixed feelings. Mia Chaplin (b. 1990), for example, presents an image of a mother feeding her children that gradually disintegrates in the coarse brushwork.”
