The Plant that Heals May also Poison

This weekend, I went to the ICA and saw Ree Morton’s exhibit. Her works were centered on themes of motherhood, personal growth and pain. They all carried a feminist undertone. What I liked about the exhibit was the blend between different artistic  modes of expression, such as poetry, theatre and visual arts. Many pieces were almost set on a “stage” and played with the idea of being “presented” to you. A personal favorite was the piece included as the cover picture to this post (“Don’t Worry I’ll Only Read you the Good Parts”) which in my mind is tied to the challenges of motherhood.
