MOTHERFUCKER is a new work, part of artist Nicola Hunter’s multi-layered response to their experiences as a single parent; an exploration of the binary, sex, death, life and the relationship western society has with the mother and the birthing body.
‘I have remained an outsider with my queer birthing body, fluxing and crashing through different lands of otherness over my time as a parent. MOTHERFUCKER is a conversation on gender and the home with a look at those patriarchal hands that feed us, while all too easily pushing their silencing fingers in our mouths.’
Artist and activist Nicola Hunter was born in NE England (UK). They have been performing and showing work nationally since 2007 within programmes such as Inbetween Time Festival (Bristol), City of Women (Ljubljana) and SPILL FESTIVAL (Ipswitch) and has successfully completed their first tour across the UK with Lost Bodies (TEMPTING FAILURE CIC, LIVE ART BISTRO, Colchester Arts Centre, Norwich Arts Centre, The Island, Artsadmin & The Marlborough Theatre). Hunter has collaborated with Predrag Pajdic, Manuel Vason (Double Exposures) and Ernst Fischer and has been awarded the Artsadmin Bursary, the Artists International Development Fund and has been supported and mentored by Unlimited, Live Art Development Agency and Pacitti Company.
