Intro
Smother presents a series of jewellery objects designed to represent the psychological and physical states induced by mothering, demonstrating the emotive relationship between object and body when they intimately coexist.

Artist list

Tiffany Parbs
Smother forms part of an ongoing investigation into existing representations of women in the media. This particular instalment looks at reframing the prevailing good/bad mother dichotomy, with particular emphasis on the gap between visceral realities of motherhood and the gamut of unrealistic expectations placed on women from external influences and ‘Ideal Mother’ myths pervading through western advertising. Smother offers an alternative reference point - one that revels and reveres in mundanity and demonstrates a heightened awareness of the ongoing psychological and physical states of mothering, and labour and loading of parenting.
