"When I was pregnant and giving birth to my child I was confronted with the fact that the older women around kept silent and wouldn’t share their stories with me. There was no tradition of talking about childbirth, afterbirth, menstruation or even what happens to the vulva during those processes. No stories, no myths, no songs, no enlightenment among women. Only furtive silence and even noticeable fear of giving birth. With my sewn vulvas I create a space of encounter, an aesthetic approach to these topics that are fundamental to all humans but rarely talked about. I simply want people to talk about the vulva and all that comes with it!"
