New Media: Vector on Cardboard.
The point of political art is to draw attention to injustices and intolerable situations. A call for attention, action.
This work does not do that. Here the call is to draw awareness to the human dimension. Here the work asks you to put yourself in the position where you feel for this mother's plight, all mothers who have sons and daughters incarcerated by those who pursue the cause of serious harm and death of those whom they feel are a threat.
The suggestion is that these letters may not have come from the woman's son; even the name is redacted.
The suggestion too is that she is fearful of using her real name in publishing these letters.
The mother lives in hope of being united with her son, of seeing him again. But that hope may never be fulfilled.
He may be dead and she may never learn of his death.
