Chapter 1: Persona as frame
Playing Kate: Outside the Hospital (2017)
The PaR explored my own messy, invisible attempt to transform into Kate through my performative repli-Kating of Kate as new mother outside the Lindo Wing (2013). The PaR was made in two parts, leaving St Richards NHS hospital with my new born and returning a few weeks later to re-perform my Repli-Kation. The images were published in Maternal Art Magazine (2020) and All4Maternity Blog, Birth, Art and Culture (2018).
