#clitastic is a mixed media installation composed of multiple wire forms that evoke the female body in order to explore current female empowerment movements. These sculptural pieces use wire and wrapping to celebrate the diversity of women’s bodies, aiming to embrace the variety of the female form and provide a contrast to the stylised portrayals of women’s genitalia that is presented on pornographic sites. These sites often provide the only source of comparison for young people and consequently can create unrealistic expectations of the female body. Instead, #clitastic suggests that all women are equally valuable, worthy and deserve to be appreciated.
