2008 : Her project focuses on voice, stories, and memories. Janine Antoni is an artist whose work is inspired by notions of family and women's experiences. She has recently become a mother and has been questioning the way she is raising her three-year-old daughter in relationship to the way her mother raised her. She invites mothers who belong to the Hudson Guild Senior Center to advise her on how to be a good parent. Antoni recorded their stories, and their singing lullabies they learned from their mothers. She recorded herself and her daughter singing as well. All the voices blend together in a sound and video installation that honor and celebrate the role of all mothers.
