Video documentation of Bobby Baker's Drawing on a Mother's Experience, first performed in 1988.
“I only intended to do this show once, really to make sense of the first eight years of motherhood before moving on. I felt very strongly that the importance of the mother’s role, indeed parenting as a whole, was shockingly undervalued. I built on my experience of using my own true stories, blending this with a commentary on domesticity, motherhood and the role of the artist. I found a subtly subversive political voice that communicated my anger in a bearable way." - Bobby Baker
Filmed by Deborah May at Jacksons Lane Arts Centre, London, September 2000.
