Milk on Rocks¬†documents a performance whereby Sargeant scrubs a rock on the yorkshire moors near her home with a bucket of cow’s milk. ¬†The milk makes a large white mark and drips down the rough surface of the rock as she scrubs. With this work Sargeant connects the body of the woman with the landscape, reflects upon domestic tasks and that of milk production as human and milk production as cow to sustain and maintain life.
