An exhibition about inner dialogues, questions, answers and bare thoughts.
The exhibition mirrors the bonds between mother and daughter, interrogating the transgenerational legacies that accompany them.
The exhibition was built around meetings between mother-daughter pairs and photographer Bogdan Dincă, together with actors Denisa Nicolae and Liviu Romanescu. The starting point of the discussions were the thoughts that the daughter or mother expressed in a letter addressed to the other.
From 7th of March, throughout the month, the works in the Mother/Daughter exhibition will be presented according to the following schedule:
- 07-10.03 (M-T): Ana-Doina | Ella-Gabriela
- 11-13.03 (F-S): Ioana-Manuela | Denisa-Gilda
- 14-17.03 (M-T): Mara-Monica | Roxana-Lenuța
- 18-20.03 (F-S): Alexandra-Carmen | Corina-Vasilina
- 21-24.03 (M-T): Sorina-Viorica | Alina-Marinela
- 25-27.03 (F-S): Anca-Adriana | Simona-Adela
- 28-31.03 (M-T): Carina-Anda | Georgiana-Luminița
The 14 portraits are accompanied by audio excerpts from the meetings. Laura Ionescu completes the portrait of her mother with a series of memories that belong to the "My mother is just words" universe.

"My mother is just words" - Laura Ionescu In this heart, the mother's voice is heard without being heard. Laura Ionescu reconstructs her mother from fragments of conversations and questions that will never be answered, just to show that time can neither defeat love nor take away its strength. This experience - about loss, but more about remembering - is inspired by the memoir „I can't find you anywhere”, published by Publica.
