Anatomy of an Oyster by Rita Puig-Serra

Anatomy of an Oyster by Rita Puig-Serra

Vernissage

12 June 2024 - 15 September 2024 | PhMuseum Lab | Via Paolo Fabbri 10/2a, Bologna, Italy

About

Mother-of-pearl, which will in time become the pearl, begins to form when a foreign element is introduced into the oyster. Starting from this metaphor, Catalan artist Rita Puig-Serra traces her childhood in an effort to process the abuses she suffered in her family as a child. It is an attempt to tell what needs to be told; a way of telling what could never be revealed to a now absent mother. And, at the same time, a way of telling it to herself.
