A eulogy is ripped apart and stapled together again – leaving a gaping hole: an homage to both motherhood and to the wisdom that parts can never equal the whole. The book works with four texts: A synopsis of the Judgment of Solomon fable, excerpts from the poem, “The Word” by Pablo Neruda, a text fragment based on the artist’s dream, and her eulogy to her mother, along with a set of photographs of bird nests.
