“I think for me as an artist, as a woman, especially the woman living in the 21st Century, I think that those experiences of the pregnancy impacted my work. Lots of artists talk about the topic of motherhood, like Mary Kelly, … I think it’s well discussed, but still like for me as a woman living as a foreigner in New York City, I feel like that’s also a unique experience. It’s like an identity change, like a pregnant woman is not a woman anymore… it was for me very odd.”
