LIQUID GOLD will explore the aesthetics of breastfeeding as a culture in County Clare. There is an art and a culture of mutuality between baby and mother in this incredible act of hospitality which is often palatable in moments at breastfeeding groups. Liquid Gold is a series of workshops aimed at breastfeeding mothers that will endeavour to capture these moments through art making.
Breastfeeding mothers are invited to participate in a series of art dialogues on breastfeeding in County Clare. These dialogues will artist-lead with the mother as the central focus. They will be offered as small happenings in peoples own homes, local cafes or breastfeeding groups. These knowledge sharing events aim to gather together the collective experience of breastfeeding pairs and form a visual accompaniment to often dry research.
Visual works created through the project will be placed in Limerick Maternity Hospital (LMH) for National Breastfeeding Week in October 2022. Presented to an audience of (new) mothers, their families, healthcare professionals and hospital staff; they will also act as a memory of this unique journey for the participants.
