Afterbirth (Sac Fluid Cord)
1998
Cast glycerin, glass bottles, amniotic sac, amniotic fluid, umbilical cord, amoxicillin. 
Installation 5 x 42 x 14"

 

Three cast glycerin dustpans hold a glass bottle in each of their handles. One carries a bit of amniotic sac, the next amniotic fluid, and the last umbilical cord. It is a piece about birth and after, about the usually discarded experience of labor, about the care taking that follows, about nourishment, preservation, and decay.
