The Whiteness of the Whale

Photograph, 2012

 

Samantha Sweeting makes imagery, installations and actions that draw upon natural history, maternity, psychoanalysis, and fairytales.

 

The tiny origami paper boat sails through Herman Melville’s midnight sea of milky whiteness and is caught upon the bulbous mammalian body of the breast whale, denoting the fraught relationship between man and mother nature, baby and the breast.
