Me and My Mother is a flip-book created in conjunction with the eponymous Ragnar Kartansson exhibition at EX3 Contemporary Art Center in Florence.

The book recreates the three videos in the project, dividing them into a sequence of images that gradually change from one page to the next, to highlight three main elements in the work: the maternal figure, an apparently scornful action, and chronological spacing that underscores the inexorable flow of time. With texts by Lorrenzo Giusti, Arabella Natalini and Markus Thor Andresson.
