  • With Child

  • Artist: Catherine Elwes
  • Year: 1984
  • Duration: 18:00
  • An individual experience of pregnancy is re-interpreted with nostalgia, waiting, pretend sex, pretend attempted murder, a pretend baby, and a baby in utero. The bespectacled videomaker is presented as Ôde-sexed , since men don t make passes at artists in glasses -especially not on screen. Traditional male desire is denied and the tape opens up the possibility of opening ip the other side of the sensual story. The artist s eye moves the story on, react to fix meaning, lose their specs and their objectivity, retrieve both and lay claim to that voluptuous, voluminous belly.
