The Great Wall Of Vagina

The 9 metre long polyptych consists of four hundred plaster casts of vulvas, all of them unique, arranged into ten large panels.

“This is about grabbing the attention, using humour and spectacle, and then educating people about what normal women really look like”
Jamie McCartney – Artist

McCartney set out to make this project as broad and inclusive as possible. The age range of the women is from 18 to 76. Included are mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women as well as a woman pre and post natal and another one pre and post labiaplasty.

“It’s time our society grew up around these issues and I’m certain that art has a role to play.”

The Great Wall Of Vagina

UK-based sculptor Jamie McCartney has spent the better half of a decade creating hundreds of renderings of female genitalia. In a project titled “The Great Wall of Vagina,” the artist demonstrates not only his ability to craft effective word play, but also his knack for capturing the physical diversity of labia in a 30-foot polyptych.

    I’m reblogging this great introduction to Jamie McCartney’s “Great Wall of Vagina” artwork (even tho’ it still bugs me that it’s encouraging the common confusion between vaginas and vulvas – I know, “vagina-China” was too good to miss…) I’m still pondering my own post on vulvas/vaginas – since strangely enough the primary female sexual organ still remains something of a fetish object – since WordPress has a ban on “pornographic” representations of human sexual organs. Is a girl smiling, lifting her skirt and proudly showing her pussy pornographic? Not in a sane world…..
