La Nourrice (come drink from me my darling)
One to one performance
Act Art, London.
La Nourrice (come drink from me my darling) is a one to one performance in which audience members are invited to suckle with the aid of a Supplementary Nursing System. Breastfeeding is dislocated from maternity, and explored as an expression of love and grief. It continues my research into stimulated lactation, looking at adult nursing as a means through which to re-think sexual play and gender difference. Milk, with its dual status as both bodily fluid and food, is ingested into the partner’s body in an intimate display of cannibalism, establishing a shared form of erotic tenderness.
