The Stork

The Stork

Juli Teitler (b. 1992) is an Israeli artist based in NYC. She received her BFA in Photography with honors with a minor in History of Art from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2017. In her work, Teitler deals with narratives reflecting on the self, exploring themes dealing with womanhood, relationship dynamics, and sexuality.


Artist Statement

The Stork is a visual story exploring questions regarding pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood following an abortion the artist had undergone in April 2018. In this series, I rebel against the notion that a woman is more than her function to carry and contain life. Using graphic imagery, fake belly props, rotten meats, and fruit I emphasize the hushed subject of abortion and the pain that follows, regardless of choosing to be a mother or childless.”
