An ongoing project featuring a varied collection of altered coin purses.
Originals & limited edition prints available here.
In our new reality of untruths and the endorsement of misogynistic and racist undercurrents in the United States, the Coin Cunts stand as a visual symbol of empowerment and equality for all people/s with a vulva. By exposing the mysterious interior of a ubiquitous object, I find each Coin Cunt is distinct just as every human is unique. A tease to the imagination, these transposed coin purses challenge our visual and cultural associations of women, money, and power. The Coin Cunts give voice to and raise awareness to many causes around the globe such as sexual exploitation, domestic violence, FGM (female genital mutilation), unnatural body image ideals, the rise of labiaplasty, reproductive justice, and the list continues to grow.
