British Artist Spent the Last Month in Boulder Casting Women’s Vaginas

 

By The Denver Egotist / / Well, here’s one for the books. The British artist Jamie McCartney has set out to quell anxieties about female body image. This month, the artist cast dozens of women’s vulvas in Boulder, Colorado, to create a new sculpture. “Don’t change your parts, change your partner,” is McCartney’s adage. When he learned years ago that labiaplasty, or the surgical reduction of the labia, is one of the fastest growing surgeries in the UK and the US, he thought: “I like labia! … This is fascism. This is the industries who are invested in making women feel shit about themselves.” He then spent five years creating his best-known work, The Great Wall of Vagina, a 26-foot-long, self-funded sculpture of 400 plaster casts of vulvas. His aim was to show the world that women’s nether regions come in all shapes and sizes. Now, he’s on to creating his next masterpiece. You can read more about the deep, philosophical thinking that goes into his work on The Guardian.
