Womb - From Denver to Paris

Light-driven Acrylic Sculpture

Lou-Anne Le Mener

Womb was a way for me to speak about my adoption story through art.

Womb is a doll’s house using shadow puppetry. Every window represents a moment of my life. From the giving of the baby to the new mother to be, to identity questioning when growing up, to a 21-year-old who found her birth parents. The imagery was inspired by Kara Walker. Womb is a magical and emotional piece to retrace a moment and a story.
