VILOMAH: Hidden Loss & Untold Futures is an exhibition exploring creative responses to emotional, social, cultural & politically-impacted experiences of pregnancy loss, baby loss & infertility.
Motivations: These losses are often hidden away and experienced as a taboo subject, which can lead to a loss feeling minimized-bringing added hurt & pain. As well as a creative & expressive outlet for a difficult subject, this exhibition aims to bring awareness and shed light on the reality of how these losses are experienced across society, culture & history.
Curator: Alice Mary Williamson Jelaska
Today it would be 32
Sometimes I see a shadow in the room. A sign of our child which didn't have a chance to be born 32 years ago. 32 years is a long time, but as I said I still see sometimes I see the shadow in the room. In this years the shadow was growing up. From an unborn baby to an adult.
