Casting Off My Womb by Casey Jenkins
In a provocative display that weds body politics and feminism with arts and crafts, Australia-based artist Casey Jenkins knitted a continuous, long scarf-like piece from a skein of wool she had inserted into her vagina.
The performance piece, cleverly called Casting Off My Womb, lasted for twenty eight days, which is the length of an average menstrual cycle. Every day at the beginning of the performance, Jenkins would insert a new skein of yarn into her vagina, spooled so that it would unravel from the center. The artist admits to occasionally becoming sexually aroused during the performance, which Aussie TV refers to as “vaginal knitting.”
