Mother and Child

Mother and Child plays with the long tradition of the same name. Inspired by her own experience and Hollie McNish’s incensed poem Embarrassed, about breastfeeding her daughter in a public toilet because of the stigma of feeding in public, Colbert and actress and model Lily Cole decided to collaborate.

Colbert filmed her breastfeeding her first child and from it created a 3 meter moving image sculpture which has been shown in public spaces around London opening up the debate.
