(Sculpture, performance)

This is a sack, worn over the head, with a vulva constructed over the face.

The vulva comprises multiple found objects from my life including a knife blade, a condom, a used earplug, and balloons that say “just married”.  It is named for ‘Sheela-na-gig‘: the figure of a women displaying enlarged vulva carved on churches.

A lot of my more personal emotional work is very intuitive piece; these objects construct a pain and vulnerability. Perhaps there is something of a conversation with Chapman Brothers here, as well.

I envisage it being shown as a performance, worn by a nude performer, to disrupt a candid space where people are otherwise just drinking and chatting — hence made to feel naturally uncomfortable.
