Project

Wanting to be a mother and not having a partner is the reality of many women that I have been meeting in the last year since I joined an association of single mothers by choice in March 2021. During my stay at Faber I will conduct several interviews through some online platforms to different women who want to share and express their desire with me through their computer screen. I will also make a conceptual map of all the information that I have been collecting during this year about different clinics, treatments and legal and economic obstacles that many women in this situation have to face.

A good opportunity

Nowadays, having time to devote to personal art projects seems like a complicated task to me and starting with the uncertainty of where to go as well will go, even though I am one of those who thinks that we should keep trying. For me to be able to have this time and this space in the Faber Andorra residence has been a good opportunity that in addition, and in a totally unexpected way, has been accompanied by support and attention received by all the people I have been lucky to know during the stay. In March 2021 I started collecting information about the different steps I was following with the idea of ​​wanting to be a single mother. But the idea that this would end up being an art project only came to my mind at times, as I wasn’t clear that it would end up being formalized as such. Doing the residency has made me believe more in the project and the interest generated by this topic, in addition I have been able to do some interviews with women who are in the process, who have also made me see the need to work and disseminate this reality and that they will also end up being part of the final project. Now, a year later, I can say that the project is underway and partly thanks to the Faber Andorra residence. The experience has been very good and I recommend it, I just want to go back to explore the territory more.
