There is an inherent desire to return to the womb. The womb is a place of healing, safety and connection to another body. The womb encapsulates us in unconscious wholeness, in the blissful state of a plant firmly rooted in the warm earth. Since the moment the connection was severed and we were brought out into the cold and light, we have strived in so many ways to return to that original place of warm, watery security. From the scared child who hides in his closet to be enclosed by its dark walls, to the lovers who fold themselves together at night, exchanging fluids and seeking instances of wholeness, to the single sleeper curled in the fetal position, we are all seeking ways to recreate that original experience of the womb. It is the underlying desire of our lives.
Womb Nostalgia features works of art that recreate the experience of that original place. Featuring painting, photography, drawing, video, sculpture and installation art by
Rachelle Reichert, Rachel Znerold, Reneé Wilson, Kathryn Virginia Harmon, Sonya Genel, Monique Atherton, Kelly Jean Egan, + Audrey V. Haller
