FT Weekend Presents: Photographing motherhood – Andi Gáldi Vinkó in conversation with Susan Bright
Motherhood: This capacious subject is interrogated through the lens of artist Andi Gáldi Vinkó in her project ‘Sorry I Gave Birth I Disappeared But Now I’m Back’. Curator Susan Bright invites Gáldi Vinkó to reflect on this body of work, and her drive to expose the personal yet perhaps common insecurities associated with what happens when an artist becomes a mother.
Andi Galdi Vinko, is an internationally acclaimed artist working in photography, based in Budapest. Her work draws visual analogies between intensely personal and intimate experiences of motherhood and womanhood and universal human experiences of coming of age, ageing, loss, and the conflict between western and eastern European ideologies. Her first book Sorry I Gave Birth I Disappeared But Now I’m Back was published by Trolley in 2022. Recent exhibitions include group shows at the Robert Capa Center and Birth at TJ Boulting, London curated by Charlotte Jansen.
Dr Susan Bright is a curator based in London. Her exhibition ’To Walk in the Image’ is currently on show at Lismore Castle Arts. She has curated a large survey exhibition of Franco Vimercati which will open at The Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (Rome) in June.
