What we wrote on May 2, 2012: Winner of the Erotic Signature international sculpture prize, master of the art of bondage casting and creator of his most recent masterpiece 'Great Wall of Vagina', Jamie McCartney has caught the attention of art enthusiasts, sex enthusiasts and basically everyone enthusiastic about this extremely erotic, socially conscious installation that has been 5 years in the making. The age range of the women is from 18 to 76. Included are mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women as well as a woman pre and post natal and another one pre and post labiaplasty. This is about grabbing the attention, using humour and spectacle, and then educating people about what normal women really look like. The Great Wall of Vagina is a 9 metre long sculpture made of 400 plaster casts of vulvas, all of them unique, arranged into ten large panels. The world Premiere will be in the Brighton Festival Fringe in May 2011.
