Don’t look at me
Karolina ĆWIK is not sure where her femininity ends and her motherhood begins. Sometimes she feels confident that she’s fulfilled, complete, and at other times she would like to be just a woman again. Her body is tired, it is also constantly touched, hugged by small arms and delicate hands, it is penetrated and tested. There is a thin line in motherhood between complete fulfilment and sacrifice, between boundless love and pain.
