Memories Of My Mother + Recent Works By Jennifer Brommer opens at Pushdot Studio, 2505 SE 11th Ave.#104 (in the Ford Building), Friday, June 4, 6-8 pm with limited number of guests in the space at a time. The show continues through July 30.
The exhibit is best described by the artist herself: “My Mother was Paranoid Schizophrenic. I barely knew who she was. I have glimpses filtered through youth and time, as a teen visiting her through the halls of Bellevue Hospital, or living with her during the early 90s in NYC hotels such as the Chelsea. This project is to recreate scenes that took place to understand who she was.
“It’s also about me, this kid in the world contending with my mother’s mental illness, and the way a child develops a sense of identity in such a setting.”
Brommer will present other recent works too. Pushdot hours Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm. Thanks to the Regional Arts and Cultural Council for the grant to pursue this project.
