“Why should I have to remind you?

As medieval Sheela Na Gig sculptures exposed and exaggerated the female genitalia, I too have exaggerated the form using soft and slippery materials from the beds of others, and garments often worn by women for the male gaze. I reassert the subject as the property of the female.

I should not have to remind you that it is not yours.”
