"Performing the Maternal: Bodies, Haptic Practices and Ethics" (2019)


Maud Lannen PhD, Goldsmiths College, University of London

This project was devised by Maud Lannen, under the supervision of Professor Anna Furse, as part of a practice-research PhD at Goldsmiths. The purpose of the study was to give visibility to individuals who are involved in maternal labours but whose labours and bodies remain marginalised by society, with the aim to reformulate what the maternal is and can become in the future.

My part of the collaboration was formed of various visuals and texts, documenting my own unconventional experiences of the maternal during IVF.
