Work Description

Title: Six Peaches


Media: Wool Fiber, Peach Seed

Dimension: 12cm diameter Each

I was eating a peach in the summer and thought the seeds looked like part of a woman's genitalia. And the peach skin with downy hair and its shape was like a woman's buttocks.So I decided to make a work on the theme of various abuses of female genitalia. The peach seeds were washed and dried, and wool fibers were used to form new peach pulp shapes on top of the seeds.There are many types of female genital abuse. Sometimes sand, pebbles, or glass are put into the vagina. Circumcision is often performed by grandmothers or female doctors, not by men.These women are forced to live in pain and poor hygiene. Nevertheless, female circumcision continues to increase. Sometimes women themselves want to be circumcised. After the stitches are removed, some women ask to be stitched again to please their husbands.I express cherishing the female genitalia rather than evoke violent images and condemn them for making people aware of the importance of fragile and precious parts of the female body.
