Forty Weeks: A performance-installation
By Kata Mejía November 9-13th, 2009
At the LAB Gallery at the Roger Smith Hotel
“Forty Weeks” is a performance-installation that celebrates the miracle of life and the act of giving birth. It represents the time a mother carries her child during pregnancy and explores various aspects of motherhood including nurturing, the relationship between mother and child, and the intimacy of breast feeding. The artist uses repetition to present the first stages of life as an accumulation of time and a period of growth.
