LULLABY was created by Mirha-Soleil Ross for the SEXIN' CHANGE Conference in Toronto, October 2001, as part of her 9 month long performance art PREGNANCY PROJECT. The PREGNANCY PROJECT explores transsexual women's relationship to the personal and institutional aspects of motherhood and hopes to foster community discussion about the ethical and political implications of "controversial" reproductive technologies such as surrogacy, female reproductive organ transplant, and cloning.
LULLABY was presented within an installation that invited the conference participants to give metaphorical ovum and spermatozoan donations.
LULLABY sings to the experience of being a barren or wombless woman in a culture that assigns to females who can bear children particular qualities and a specific status within the cosmological order.
