An ongoing project featuring a varied collection of altered coin purses.
Originals & limited edition prints available here.
In our reality of untruths and the political validation of misogynistic and racist undercurrents in the United States, the Coin Cunts stand as a visual symbol of empowerment and equality for all people with a vulva. By exposing the mysterious interior of a ubiquitous object, we find each Coin Cunt is distinct just as every human is unique. A tease to the imagination, these transposed coin purses challenge our visual, political and cultural associations of gender, money, and power. Since their inception, the Coin Cunts have given voice to and raised awareness for many causes around the globe such as reproductive rights, sexual exploitation, bodily autonomy, FGM (female genital mutilation), racial disparities in reproductive health, and the list continues to grow.
