RESEARCH: "(In) Fertile Embodiment" (2022-26) & "Re.conceive" (2021-22)
PUBLIC PARTICIPANTS: Call Out...
As part of my re.conceive project I worked with a large number of public participants on a series of online tasks. The responses were overwhelming and incredibly moving.
FOR A FINE ART PRACTICE/RESEARCH PROJECT
I am interested in hearing from women who would like to take part in some questions/tasks (via email) regarding infertile embodiment & identity, and its relationship to the social construction of reproductive bodies and normative motherhood. This is likely to involve collecting personal stories of your experience of infertility, as well as your response to a series of more free writing/visual tasks on certain prompts around the themes, sharing as much or as little as you want. You don’t need to be an artist or a writer to volunteer.
Your contribution will further research to challenge the cultural stigma and silence of infertility, helping make this condition visible within Art and beyond. I am interested in any type of infertility and any level of infertility/subfertility (including those who have gone on to have children). All responses treated as confidential.
Please get in touch with expressions of interest or questions and queries to firstname.lastname@example.org, by 15/04/2021.
