Sheela

This is a sack, worn over the head, with a vulva constructed over the face. The vulva comprises multiple found objects including a knife blade, a condom, a used earplug, and balloons that say “just married”.  For the timebeing I’m going with the title ‘Sheela’ as in ‘Sheela-na-gig‘: the figures of women displaying enlarged vulva carved on churches (but other options include ‘Prawn’ or ‘Cuntface’.) This was a very intuitive piece, so it’s hard to say in a linear way what it’s about beyond gender, and pain, and vulnerability. I envisage it being shown as a performance, worn by a nude performer, to disrupt a candid space where people are otherwise just having coffee and chatting – so not expecting this, and made to feel naturally uncomfortable.
