Georgia O’Keefe claimed that any resemblance between her flower paintings and female genitalia was accidental. We made no such claim. In this all-night performance installation, women earned coupons to model their flower and women and men paid to design their own, hand-painted scarf based on a woman’s flower. Created for Duckie’s Gay Shame Goes Girly at the Brixton Academy, London, 2009 and for Traumfrau's Women's Day Spectacular (with Edina Husanovic and Olga Raciborska).
