Watch video (in Spanish) ︎

Fábula encinta (Pregnant Fable) explores the image of male pregnancy in literature and writers’ biographies. The work specifically revolves around the rhetoric of authors that refer to their works as offspring and to their creative process as gestation.
In the video, a researcher articulates his discourse while discarding index cards that reveal the subjective aspects of his labor.
