Out with Mother

Video Still

Video, (3 minutes), looped installation,

The video creates disturbing tensions and provokes questions about representations of ‘mother’. The multiple images simultaneously show a mother out with her baby in a sling, a lonely figure on a beach and an almost invisible indexical shadow of a woman in a domestic space. These shadowy images are accompanied by a distorted sound loop of a child calling for his mother.

The intention is to show simultaneous representations of women who mother and create a conversation about multiplicity and representation through the mundane, and hauntingly distressing.
