Babamama

Video  

A duration of 30 minutes 

An early version of the piece, X( No)

 

Babamama is a video that documents my struggles of being the “other” in a family.  Because of a lack of communication growing up, calling my parents “Dad” and “Mom” has always been a great challenge for me. In this performance, I locked myself in a room and forced myself to repeatedly write “Dad” and “Mom” with my left hand, while verbalizing out the words. As the recording progresses, my voice crumbles.
