Meet Jamie McCartney, the man behind The Great Wall of Vagina! Make the most of this rare appearance by asking him all your burning questions about women, vulvas and his wonderful art. Jamie will be at Sh!, talking about his epic sculptures and what – or rather who – inspired him to create The Great Wall of Vagina. He will also sign copies of The Great Wall of Vagina Book – the official book of the project, complete with photographs. Copies of the book, along with other fun GWoV merchandise such as mugs and postcards will be available to purchase on the day.
Date: Saturday 2nd April 2016
Jamie McCartney, a revolutionary wih a bucket of plaster, cast 400 vulvas for his 5-year long project The Great Wall of Vagina. The volunteers included mothers & daughters, identical twins, trans women as well as pre-and post natal women, and a woman pre- and post labia plasty.
From 18 to 76, the women volunteered to have their labia immortalized by McCartney and the work has been exhibited all over the world. Select pieces from The Great Wall of Vagina can now be enjoyed at Sh! The exhbition is free, and open Monday – Sunday 12-8pm until the end of April.
It’s an amazing exploration of human variety.
