edition Witty Books / Images Vevey

In this 2017/2018 Images Vevey Grand Prix winning series, Peter Puklus deconstructs the dynamics of pre-established female and male roles: motherhood as a presumed heroic activity and the father's assumed duty to build and protect the home. Premiered internationally at the 2018 edition of the Images Vevey Festival with an immersive installation, the project continues today as an artist's book co-published by Witty Books and Images Vevey.

By deploying an extraordinary visual and pictorial vocabulary around his own family unit, Puklus breaks down the symbols traditionally associated with maternal and paternal fig- ures. Throughout the pages, he shares with the reader his doubts, his states of mind and his vulnerability.
