Wrecking Ball

Wrecking Ball woodcut and cardboard print

Note from the artist: This print is part of the collection Wank!, a series of six posters for various sources - such as essays, video clips, movies or performances - all dealing with the taboo subject of female masturbation. Acting like a curator of these references, I aim to highlight that any attempt to represent feminine masturbation through a feminist eye still finds its limits where a branded masculine interpretation of feminine sexuality starts.
