Each Poison, A Pillow


2022 - ongoing

A letter written by Stefanie Moshammer when she was eight years old functions both as a basis and at the same time as a hypernym in her work, Each Poison, A Pillow.
The work reflects on alcoholism among women and exists as a layered visual narrative. Stefanie Moshammer’s theoretical and visual research starts from an individual perspective and focuses on her own mother, though she is aiming to contrast it with a collective one.
Besides the personal story on the relationship between mother and daughter, she includes different kind of investigations,  pre-existing archive materials and new interpretations, to look at the topic of female alcoholism.
