“Vincles de valor” (Bonds of Value), an exhibition in the Palau Robert

The collection of photographs by Ana Calvo portraying the relationship between mothers and children who suffer from cerebral palsy can be seen up until the 29th of September

Disabilities are often viewed with a mixture of fear and anguish, or a certain residual discrimination that stems from misunderstanding or lack of awareness of the behaviour of people we do not consider as “normal”. One of these cases is that of cerebral palsy, an affectation that, like other related conditions, does not exclude feelings and the bonds of love.
 
On the basis of this desire to illustrate the bonds that exist between mothers and children affected by cerebral palsy, photographer Ana Calvo, herself the mother of a son diagnosed with the condition, has captured this loving relationship in an exhibition that can be seen from the 17th to the 29th of September in the Palau Robert.
 
Under the title, Bonds of value. Extraordinary mothers with singular children, the series of photographs portrays this intense relationship which, above all, features the mutual love that is created as a result of a deep sense of union, protection and tenderness. As Isabel Caba, the curator of the exhibition says, “...bonds are the arteries for the transmission of emotions, thoughts, values, ideas and orders and disorders, and this exhibition is a recognition of the mothers who, day after day, in virtual anonymity, turn these feelings of love into the value that their singular children cherish above all else”.

At the same time, the exhibition can be seen as a protest, “...nobody should be discriminated against for reasons of sex, culture, religious beliefs, or for the state of their health. All of us should be able to live together in understanding, respect, tolerance and solidarity”.
 

Bonds of value is a project developed by the Cerebral Palsy Association (ASPACE) and photographer Ana Calvo with the collaboration of the Palau Robert.
