Kitchen Table Series | Carrie Mae Weems


Regular price $88
Regular price Sale price $88

Artist Carrie Mae Weems tells a story of one woman’s life through photographs and  text. The kitchen, one of the primary spaces of domesticity and the traditional domain of women, frames her story, revealing to us her relationships—with lovers, children, friends—and her own sense of self, in her varying projections of strength, vulnerability, aloofness, tenderness and solitude.

As Weems describes it, this work of art depicts “the battle around the family ... monogamy ... and between the sexes". Weems herself is the protagonist of the series, though the woman she depicts is an archetype. Kitchen Table Series seeks to reposition and reimagine the possibility of women and the possibility of people of color, and has to do with, in the artist’s words, “unrequited love.”
