"Art Nomade: International Meeting of Performance Art"
produced by Bang, Centre d’art Actuel; Langage Plus; Alma, Canada. 2013
I deliver an academic paper by L. Moran and J. Gilad (2007), entitled ’From Folklore to Scientifc Evidence: Breastfeeding and Wet-Nursing in Islam and the Case of Non-Puerperal Lactation’.
Audiences nearest to me discern a second, veiled, activity from the rhythmic drone of a pump and my oddly-shaped chest.
When I finish delivering the paper, I decant breastmilk expressed during the recitation into porcelain spoons. I then spoon-feed the audience, one person at a time.
