Fantasy Birth Memory

Clarissa Borge

Video. 2017



Fantasy birth memory is a video that intend to approach child-

birth to sexuality. It ́s simulate the sensations of labor contrac-

tions, and time between contractions, I experienced giving birth.


Photographs taken casually in my two labors are mixed in this

artwork, sometimes they present a very close traveling of the

pregnant body, these calm images are interrupted with very fast

and detailed photographs. The sound in the video was made

mixing heart beats and a very strong and fast punk rock. The

video ends with darkness, a sound of woman’s pleasure and a

baby crying can be heard. The different feelings I had on labor in

two distinguished times are together, the first one is the strong, animal and deep felling of infinity silent, the second was made

of pleasure and body empowerment.
