SAN ANTONIO, TX.-
Photographer Sarah Sudhoff presents her first solo exhibition with French & Michigan Gallery
featuring her recent series Supply and Demand.
Turning to the politics of breastfeeding, Sudhoff pulls from her inability to produce enough milk for her then-young son as inspiration for documented performances, milk typologies, self-portraits, and sculpture. The milk serves as subject and metaphor for feelings of loss and failure experienced by so many mothers, while highlighting the way in which breastfeeding is highly medicalized and undeniably personal in contemporary American culture.
Sarah Sudhoff: Supply and Demand is accompanied by a publication designed and produced by French & Michigan with two essays and a dialogue between the artist and curator.
Presentation remains on view by appointment through October 11.
