TRACES OF DREAMT CHILDREN

TRACES OF DREAMT CHILDREN is an ongoing  prejudices-free research project for a book and work of public art that collects the personal experiences of pregnant women with particular emphasis on the dreams and the infinite possibilities that unfold during pregnancy.

This is a life-long project for me. My goal is to create the conditions to trace the psychological transformations that a pregnant woman experiences. Ultimately, my dream is to develop a network of women who together build a place, in the public space of each participating community, that becomes the opposite of a cemetery. I call this place “SOURCE”,  a place focused on the living — on transformations, uncertainties, and the future — in which each pregnant woman is an agent of change for a new reading of pregnancy.

A “SOURCE” is a place where we can create  together alive memories of our transformations.

Curently I’m artist- in- residence at MASS MoCA, USA.

At this stage of the project, I’m looking for pregnant women who live within a short drive of MASS MoCA, or are visiting the museum, and want to share experiences of their pregnancy with her by answering questions concerning: the first moments of pregnancy, body sensitivity, fears, dreams and the special self-awareness that comes with pregnancy.
