Umbilicus is a meditation on sensuality, blood, hunger, and the sweet ache of shame’s hangover. Carrie Schiffler is an actor, writer, and former exotic dancer. Johanna Stickland is a photographer, painter, poet, and former fashion model. Both are smitten by the female form, intrigued by unpolished beauty and drawn to dark pubs and radiant beings equally. Not only do they share similar interests, they also share DNA. Carrie and Johanna are mother and daughter. Umbilicus is their gift to one another and to those who wish the experience.
