The video explores economies of (m)others, bodies and pain, with particular reference to breastfeeding trauma, the technology of breast pumping and mastitis. The video traverses a medical, maternal body and that of the sexualised or desired body. The character of the stripper becomes a metaphor for a labouring woman as both a breastfeeding (m)other with mastitis but also as an objectified version of a performing, working body.
