Botanique in Brussels is proud to present the major retrospective exhibition Home Game by the Belgian artist duo memymom. memymom is the mother-daughter duo of Lisa De Boeck and Marilène Coolens, who first became known for their intimate family archive of analogue photos in which role-playing and staged mother-daughter scenes are central. Over the years, these staged dream portraits have developed not only into a mature conversation about metamorphosis, personal identity and the mother-daughter relationship, but also into a plea for sensual analysis and tragic romance. This is the first time that the duo's home city of Brussels has been the location for a major retrospective of their work. Home Game not only shows an overview of earlier pieces, but also presents a lot of new and never-before-seen images. With more than 220 works dating from 1990 to the present, it is a broader and completely reimagined elaboration of the exhibition previously shown at the Musée de la Photographie in Charleroi (09.2018 – 01.2019).
