Will I Lose Myself In Motherhood?
Klaire Doyle approached people inside Menier Gallery, London and asked them for responses to the question on her sandwich board. The ethnographic research aimed to expose the expectations and realities of motherhood, as well as challenge her own fears about potential future sacrifices and compromises.
The responses ranged from anger, to offense, to relief. The people that answered said that motherhood is a huge loss, motherhood is a temporary loss, and that motherhood is worth the loss.
This performance was in association with Tokophobias project and supported by VILLAGES Arts - a platform developed by Klaire Doyle and Georgianna Cardoso Zarate to support the creative career development of mothers and women artists.
