Baby Gestures  

Baby gestures is a response to holding my sleeping child and trying to remove them from my body without waking. Exploring the performative gestures undertaken to not disturb them, the video uses self portraiture performance for the camera to enact the sometimes subtle and not so subtle bodily movements.

It is not until babies stop breastfeeding that they learn they are not part of their mother’s body. This video seeks to represent the separation and individual entities in this close relationship.
