Milking It (2013)

Animated GIF
Edition 1 + 1 AP

Milking It is an animated GIF work by Marisa Olson, originally curated by Jesse Darling for Rhizome’s Performance GIFs series. The chemical therapy the artist takes to cope with the death of a parent on chemotherapy causes the child to artificially lactate like a new mother. Here she takes matters into her own hands, deliberately ‘crying on command’ to share a milky tear as evidence of this abject paradox.

Marisa Olson combines performance, video/new media, painting/drawing, and installation to address the cultural histories of technology and wellness, experiences of gender, and the politics of participation within pop culture. Well-known for her development of the concept of ‘post-internet art’ in the aughts, Olson’s work is embedded within a social milieu saturated and defined by the Internet.
