A number of small works made for the vulva project, curated by Rebeka Axon.  meat flaps is made from previous fleshlumps.  The latex vulvas are made from boobscape udder pieces.  battle of the cxxt (under my skin) was made in response to the recent rape and death in Melbourne, and the surrounding debates about women’s freedom of movement, men’s curfews etc.  The text was deliberately taken from other headlines from the weekends paper, with only one clipping referencing the actual incident.  It is a low tech cut and paste, embedded in a latex skin, as the latex ages and yellows the words will be obscured.
