Vivid Live present Nicola Hunter's MOTHERFUCKER, a multi-layered response to their experiences of single parenthood and the relationship western society has with the mother and the birthing body.

About

This new iteration of the work is a multi-layered response to Hunter’s experiences of being a single parent, an exploration of the binary, sex, death, life and the relationship western society has with the mother and the birthing body. Exploring western societies relationship with the birthing body and the Mother construct. Highlighting the social and cultural imbalances associated with gender and the home.

‘I have remained an outsider with my queer birthing body, fluxing and crashing through different lands of otherness over my time as a parent. MOTHERFUCKER is a conversation on gender and the home with a look at those patriarchal hands that feed us, while all too easily pushing their silencing fingers in our mouths.’
