Let's Get You Pregnant by Heidi Barkun


I'm a transdisciplinary artist currently in my final year of a master's degree in Visual and Media arts and Feminist Studies at the Université du Québec à Montréal. I'm also an infertile woman, who with my husband, went through 5 cycles of IVF and 2 inseminations and never became pregnant.

LET'S GET YOU PREGNANT! is a research-creation project about assisted reproductive technologies, failure, and the politics of the female body.

By exposing and rethinking failure - failure of reproductive technology; failure to become mother - I hope to create an artwork that resists the veneration of science, the normative voices of society, and the taboos surrounding infertility
