Document 12 x 12

In 2013 I published research on Kelly’s Post-Partum Document (1973-1979), analysing it in relation to Baraitser’s Maternal Encounters (2006) alongside aspects of Ettinger’s matrixial. That same year, I put this research-to-work, as part of a place of their own project entitled Document 12x12. At its simplest, 12x12 was home-video, of sorts, but with rules. 12x12 spans the latter stages of my 4th pregnancy, ending 12 weeks post-birth, thus an exploration of Ettinger's original matrixial-encounter-event (and carriance) as it happened, against the backdrop of everyday (no less significant in terms of producing subjectivity) happenings.
