Hugging from Bedroom Soliloquies Series
Not For Sale
During the pandemic, I invited strangers into my bedroom. This skipped the usual stages of Zoom decorum, opening up straight into the interior of my world. I have often shied away from the clarity of language, but I came to enjoy letting a provocateur part of me out. My video series, Bedroom Soliloquies, has come out of that time and marks many life transitions: vulnerable truths of trauma, patriarchal & hetronormative society, and the role mothers and women are expected to hold. Hugging is one video of this series, noting the additional challenges of intimacy during this time. In brokering a new digital deal, I claim the space I inhabit as sacred, whether virtual, live or prerecorded.
