LUNE

Digital film with sound

Collaboration with Baldvin Ringsted

Dreamlike and disturbing, Lune is about Mary Toft, who in 1724 began to give birth to bloody pieces of baby rabbit. 

Having displayed in Leister square, she was seen by the king’s surgeon who agreed that the ‘monstrous’ birth was a severe case of Maternal Impression; that Mary Toft, having been startled by a rabbit in the early stages of pregnancy and her subsequent dreams of rabbits and strong craving to eat rabbit meat, meant her human foetus had turned rabbit in utero.
