Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene, 2016-

The project Dear Daughter consists of a series of voice-based live performances, video documents and performative speech installations. In these works, I interweave my own experiences and thoughts on crucial elements in female life -such as pregnancy, birth, mothering and female sexuality- with text fragments from feminist literary sources. I then perform the text collages through hybrid technological forms.

Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene (O’Connell Oh Oh Haraway), 2016-2021, is about sex, sexuality and kinship. This text links anatomic descriptions of the clitoris from Helen O’Connell’s “Anatomy of the Clitoris”, (2005) with Donna Haraway’s concept of the chthulucene (staying with the trouble, 2016) and is being performed in a landscape of sculptural objects and playback technology while marking/mapping my naked body with body paint.
