The Lactation Station invites audiences to taste samples of pasteurized human breast milk donated by new mothers, initiating dynamic and multifaceted conversation about intimacy, taste, risk, trust, culture and bodily fluids. This project is an example of my social practice, where public engagement is central: the work exists when met by an audience, through interaction and engagement. It’s also an example of making space for voices and experiences often suppressed and marginalized by dominant culture. The Lactation Station is my most written about performance and it continues to evolve. I’m currently in conversation about a 2019 presentation of the work.
