Part Three

Maternal Space (during IVF)
These pieces conceive of Maternal Space through the convergence of infertility in women and infertility in our ecological environment in the 21st century, drawing on the exploitation of the production of natural resources and the exploitation of the female body in relation to (re)production.

This work reflects on the exhaustion of the natural environment and the natural female body within 21st century lifestyles, both resorting to artificial methods of reproduction to sustain themselves. The images attempt to draw visual parallels between these two infertile spaces as artificial germination of crops lie alongside IVF hormone cultivated embryos, both incubated outside their natural habitats to ensure optimum productions levels.
