There is a Myth

"The traditional icon of the mother is notably absent from this tape. Instead, the work centers on the image of a breast milking under the rough caress of an infant's hand. The uncompromisingly physical experience of maternal love is much in evidence. Fear of loss inspires gestural mourning and a sentimental song. Playfulness and a devouring lust insist on a hearing and I am not above teasing Freudian castration anxieties." -C.E.
