Post Erotica: The Anthropology of Motherhood

“Post Erotica: The Anthropology of Motherhood” is an artistic scrapbook, a collection of moments, a visual diary of

valuable experiences of being a mom. A determined undertaking to fully experience connection with my children; to explore the significance of the subtle acts of love and care in their lives. My work also serves as a reminder to realize that hidden in the mundanity of being a caregiver, there are moments that could determine the course of one’s life. Shown through digital inkjet and 3D prints, video, installation, and collages, this show hopes to rekindle memories of one’s relationship with their mother and explore the effects and influence of these moments in the course of their own lives.

Works by Fran Ledonio Flaherty, ICA Batch ’91 Spirants on Friday, December 11at 6:00pm – 9:00pm in EST at 709 Penn Gallery, 709 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Tickets Available at

“The roots of our ability to cooperate with one another lay not in war-making, as sociobiologists have long argued, but in the unique way that early modern humans reared their children.” ~Sarah Hardy, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, UC Davis
