Maternity Leave: Para-Natural Pregnancies
Collaboration with Devin Harclerode
A collection of six suits, a quilt, and ready-to-wear items for sale that invoke notions of “anti-fertility” and preternatural birth. Exploring various birthing phenomena through myth-making, the outfits disintegrate the stigmas, regulations, and narratives surrounding the relationship between having a uterus and giving birth.
Calling attention to unpaid domestic and reproductive labor, the ready-to-wears were sold at Sediment with all cash going to the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project.
