What does it mean to depict and represent something which is a negation? If woman is a structural category, what does it mean to represent this structure? Is she a place or a space? Does she have walls? Are her orifices windows? How many does she have? Can you walk through her like an arch? Or do you walk over her like an overpass? Is she a structure you want to live in? Or is she a volatile construct covered with a tarp? Does her interior catch crosswinds? Or is she a suffocating space with the windows shut? Is her facade raw concrete? Or is she finished with limestone and marble? Is there writing on her walls?

Woman is structure, but Mother is history.
