The stated subject of Shelly Leavens's solo exhibition of satirical and pointed sculptures and drawings is motherhood, as the title says. But it's really about change and resistance to it, and rather than anything soft and warm, it has an undeniable undercurrent of violence: a looping video walk around the changing, chain-link-fenced South Seattle block where she recently moved (and which is gentrifying?); a life-size painted cardboard cutout of a smug man from around the time the house was built (when men and women existed in blatantly separate realms); and objects, including bullets, that she found in the attic of her home, paired with menacing, fictional letters she wrote from the perspective of their owners—her predecessors.
