What do you think of VAGINAL KNITTING? Is it GREAT (self love & a woman’s self expression) or GROSS? VIDEO: http://bit.ly/1eiaHBH
— Casey Jenkins is an Australian feminist performance artist who also calls herself a ‘craftivist’. She says, “I’m spending 28 days knitting from wool that I’ve inserted in my vagina. Everyday I take a new skein of wool that’s been wound so that it will unravel from the centre and I stick it up inside me and then I pull out the thread and knit.”
Sounds uncomfortable to me! According to Casey Jenkins, “It’s slightly uncomfortable sometimes, arousing sometimes.”
Ms Jenkins wants to use her art to make a point about society’s fear, the taboos and negative feelings we have about female genitalia… “If you take a good hard look at a vulva, you realize it’s just a part of a body. There’s nothing that is shocking or scary, nothing that is gonna run out & eat you up.”
Her period starting… Even that’s not enough to stop Casey Jenkins. “When I’m menstruating it makes knitting a hell of a lot harder because the wool is heavy and you have to yank at it.”
Good gosh. Maybe we do need this art. Maybe we don’t have a totally healthy relationship with our ‘private parts’! Part of me is shocked by this artist’s work and the other part is saying, ‘you go girl!’ WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I’m here rooting for you!
