Contemporary motherhood is a profound, multifaceted experience that artist Rebecca Bonaci seeks to explore and celebrate in her latest project, ĠUF. With a rich tapestry of cultural, historical, philosophical, and psychological layers, this artistic endeavour delves into the complex world of motherhood and the evolving role of mothers in society.

Drawing inspiration from the Maltese word for 'womb,' ĠUF takes viewers on a journey that combines contemporary perspectives with the ancient prehistoric remains and rituals of the Maltese archipelago.

Rebecca, along with her dedicated curatorial team, reinterprets the iconography and imagery from the primordial period, creating a fascinating dialogue between the past and the present.

This thought-provoking exhibition is not only an artistic endeavour but a personal one for the artist, as she draws from her own experiences of family bonding, femininity, childbearing, and motherhood.

The result is a powerful visual exploration that invites visitors to reflect on the cultural shifts and societal changes that have shaped our understanding of motherhood over time.

ĠUF will be on display at Spazju Kreattiv from the 27th of October to the 3rd of December and offers free entrance to all.

This exhibition promises to be an enlightening and emotionally resonant experience, shedding light on the profound and ever-evolving role of mothers in our world.
