Action for the first live edition of PEPA (Small Performance Art Event) after the pandemic.
This is a square, in the Lavapiés neighborhood of Madrid, on Friday, May 7, 2021.
The concept of breastfeeding and everything related to it has always caught my attention; to feed, the bond that is established, the changes in the body and in the breasts …
I decided freely and consciously not to have children and I do not regret it; two months ago they removed my uterus, so that decision became irrefutable. Sometimes, however, I wonder what experiences I have missed and what my life would have been like if I had decided to be a mother.
The video documentation of this action will be shown in autumn at the S-MOM Festival at the Meno Parkas gallery in Kaunas, Lithuania, at the Grüntaler 9 space in Berlin and at the Valie EXPORT Cube in Vienna in 2022. This project is organized by the S-MOM platform that investigates different aspects of (non) motherhood.
