Exploring the multi-faceted experience of becoming a parent, Bergeron's works address the various stages and emotions involved in the transition, ranging from confusion to euphoria. Works such as "Quack-Quack" - a child's antique pedal car featuring an atom bomb explosion-shaped eruption of rubber duckies - embody the surreal and sometimes overwhelming experience of new parenthood in sculptural form.
