{v}

5 February 2021 - 21 March 2021

Gustav Courbet’s The Origin of the World, is possibly the better-known of historic paintings, to audaciously depict and place female genitalia in the foreground of the work, thereby elevating it to subject matter.

Whilst sexually charged, the anonymous woman’s body and stance, do not attain erotic or pornographic status. The work is simply a crude and unequivocal portrayal of the sinuosity of a (female) body in space, powerfully modelled and accentuated through light and shade. This is precisely how and why {v} was conceived, as an overdue attempt to both celebrate and demystify the female form, by overtly choosing to portray the vagina in literal, or abstracted terms, or even by connotation. Forming part of Spazju Kreattiv’s annual Art +Feminism programme, the collective multi-media visual exhibition, will be accompanied by ancillary events, such as talks and screenings which shall both foster and encourage debate and dialogue on, and surrounding the subject.
