From 2nd April to 2nd May, a monumental wall sculpture showcasing the private parts of 400 women will be on display at Sh! The Women’s Erotic Emporium in Hoxton. Today, it seems that images of the vagina/fandango/noony/foof are created for either the sole preserve of pornographers, erotic artists or feminists. Yet in 2012, British artist Jamie McCartney aimed to change this by creating the Great Wall of Vagina.
McCartney rightly said that “it’s time our society grew up around these issues and I’m certain that art has a role to play.” The installation is not about sexualising women’s bits, but as a way to grab people’s attention and educate them on how every single vajayjay is different in its own wonderful way.
The women who opted to become a part of the 9 metre-long sculpture range between 18 to 76 years old. They include mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women as well as a woman pre and post natal.
The exhibition in store is free for the entire month. It’s definitely worth popping in to marvel at the array of foofs on display.
