It’s both wholly repulsive and uncontrollably sexy at the same time. UK Artist and sculptor Jamie McCartney has put together this well, art, I guess you could call it, by making molds out of 400 women’ hoo-has. How he convinced them to model for his “Great Wall”? The world may never know…
This is what the artist had to say:
Vulvas and labia are as different as a faces and many people, particularly women, don’t seem to know that… showing the variety of shapes is endlessly fascinating, empowering and comforting. For many women their genitals are a source of shame rather than pride and this piece seeks to redress the balance, showing that everyone is different and everyone is normal.
How interesting. I guess this gives the power back to the ladies? Makes them confident? Raises their self-esteem? If I a few of those molds, I’d be rather embarrassed (check out the rudder flap in the bottom left corner, that’s a vagina that only a mother could love). The best best is that the artist is a man who claims to have had sex with most of his models. How empowering.
This “exhibit,” so to speak, was on display at Brighton Fringe Festival back in May…god knows if it’s still there.
