Hi, Mom

Installation, 2024

Alice Van der Wielen-Honinckx in collaboration with Berenike Corcuera

In their current research, Berenike Corcuera and Alice Van der Wielen-Honinckx investigate slowness and textile handcrafting as doorways to open conversations around birth. Hi, Mom emerged during a residency at LE18 MARRAKECH, in partnership with the Flemish government, Darna-House for Flemish-Morrocan Culture, and the Gifted Mothers of Dar Bellarj.


This installation invites to enter a slow zone and meet the person who gave birth to us. Headphones propose a mediation where we met our mothers, ask what they need from us, and how they would feel if their wishes were fulfilled.

A table with flowers, pen and paper are there as writing station where we collect letters that emerge from the encounter.
