Mammary Mountain – Artist talk

Tara Baoth Mooney, Maf’j Alvarez & Camille Baker

Saturday 2nd December, 2pm – 3pm

NEoN Digital Arts Workshop & Event Space

We are delighted to invite you to join us for a unique artist talk with Tara Baoth Mooney, Maf’j Alvarez & Camille Baker. The three artists will talk about their new work, Mammary Mountain, and share incredible stories, delving into the unique perspective it offers in empowering women and bringing to light the often overlooked struggles they face.

Mammary Mountain is an intimate performative experience that explores ‘dis-ease’ within the body through the experience of breast cancer. This new interactive work tells the stories of women’s healthcare struggles, particularly on the hidden experiences of breast cancer treatment. The immersive VR exposes the idea of ‘dis-ease’ within the body and the body’s relationship to the broader context of the land. The artists hope this work ignites new public engagement, ultimately resulting in a more nuanced and holistic understanding of the experience.

The Experience

Two people sitting in chairs with VR headsets on.

You are also invited to partake in bearing witness to the journey of the breast cancer experience, as narrated by survivors and patients. As ‘patients,’ the audience wears a special haptic jacket, sits in a bespoke chair shaped like mammary glands, and uses a VR headset to experience this intimate performance.
