Mother of Water is a performance costume inspired by three Brazilian Folkloric female water entities. The aim of this piece is to establish water as a symbol of fertility through its embodiment in the figure of the water woman. The ritual of the incorporation of the entities through the use of water makes mothers translate life through a perfectly circular cycle. This rotation is represented within the Folkloric figures of Yemanj√°, Oxum and Nan√£. They are daughter, mother and grandmother of water. From the mud they are born, cleansed, become liquid life, give life through water and back into mud they transform.
