Without your mother
‘ Without your mother considers the nature of absence within maternal relationships. An absence is a state or condition in which something expected, wanted or looked for is not present. We begin our lives looking for our mothers. Do we ever stop looking for them and do they ever stop looking for us? As we grow, we make attempts to detach ourselves in order to become independent and live adult lives. What remnants of this relationship that defines our early lives remain in the distance of adulthood? Amid absence, our memories morph, the details become duller and distorted over time and we’re left with a summarised version of what might have happened, similar to a photograph. Some edges will blur and some will sharpen until those are the only parts we can remember.‘

Australia faced one of its worst bush fire seasons during the summer of 2019 going on to 2020, with around 18,636,079 hectares burnt.
In response to this national tradegy, we teamed up with our friends at Rewind Photo Lab and a few artists we have worked with in the past to get a print sale up and running, with 100% of proceeds to be split between WIRES and FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES.
Due to not meeting the deadline for FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES, we decided to split that half of the funds between SEED MOB and FIRESTICKS ALLIANCE.
We raised $2,200.00
Artists in order:
Jordan Madge, Otis Burian Hodge, Isabella Kerstens, Tammy Law, Jason Koxvold, Harry Culy,
