I am primarily a performance artist; however, this often transpires into a video or installation of a performance. Growing up as a dancer, I’ve always had an interest in movement and this media allows me to explore movement. I have a strange relationship with my body; I’m in awe of how it works and the mechanics behind it, but I am also strangely disgusted by it. Working with video and installation allows me to control how my body is seen and performance allows me to confront my own body in my work.
‘Lacticum’ is a performance piece relating to my breastfeeding experience. In this performance, I will reduce myself to a milking machine. My aim with this work is to open up a dialogue to address the pressures women face as they enter motherhood, especially in the way they feed their children.
