6 May 8 May Australia/Melbourne LLAETH (milk) http://yirramboi.net.au/events/llaeth-milk/ Artist: Gareth Chambers Nation: Welsh UK Price ($): 10 - 25 Duration: 70 mins LLAETH (milk) is part of a triple Bill, which includes Monster and MASANHU KONGONYA (weaving of the hatchets). Llaeth (Milk) is an exploration of the relationship the male body once had with that of the Mother’s body. Why is breastfeeding seen as a taboo in some sections of our society? Why is the Mother revered but yet equally repressed when it comes to women in the workplace? Psychoanalytic theory tells us that prior to our acceptance of language and society we were at one with our Mother’s female body, living without judgement and repression. When we become aware of our own identity and the rules that construct it, the Mother and her body is rejected in order to find our own sense of self. Much associated with the feminine body becomes abject and taboo. It disturbs, disrupts and transgresses the boundaries of order but can truth be found in the body/energy of the Mother? The Mother we have rejected in order to be our selves. Meat Market RMIT School of Art art.school@rmit.edu.au Book
