Hush Now My Darling is a live performance that explores the relationship between maternal instinct and speciesism. The success and failure of caring for a non-human child is physicalized through the creation of a baby out of raw, pre-packaged, meat. The audience watch as lumps of beef are transformed into a life-like human baby figure, and she desperately attempt to soothe it’s cry.
About the artist
Elisabeth is an interdisciplinary artist who works across performance, live art, film and photographic documentation. Her practice is committed to exploring how bodies are used within the performance space and the relationship between them. Elisabeth is intrigued by the fluidity of her own identity, the social expectations others have of her and how she allows herself to become a hybrid.
Elisabeth took part in CPT’s annual Starting Blocks scheme in 2016.
