Don't F*ck With My Pussy (Pillow) by Sharon Williams

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sharon Williams is an Australian multidisciplinary artist interested in spatial memory, symbolism and the personal sensitivities associated with space, place and time. Her emergent and experimental art practice incorporate Fine Art with traditional feminine art-and-craft skills to create mixed-media artworks, collage and site-specific installations. As a response to the ephemeral nature of colour, texture and pattern within the environment, Sharon uses her dreams, childhood memory and personal life experience to explore the healing processes associated with self-worth, identity and belonging.  Her current art practice transforms 'worthless' pre-loved and upcycled materials into aesthetic objects of value.

DESCRIPTION

‘DON’T F*CK WITH MY PUSSY!’ is a radical act of resistance couched as installation art addressing the violation and disrespect of sexual assault and its subsequent trauma. It deals with blame, isolation, and the strength of survivors through both its content and form - reclaiming the vulgarity of the word ‘pussy’ and revisiting the perceptions of the Feminist Art Movement of the 1970s. The litter of nine cats represent femininity, the quote ‘A cat has nine lives’ and as a metaphor, like a cat, to land on your feet. Each cat represents part of the narrative associated with the artist's Masters art project - 'Note to Self - Is My Life Worth Living?'

The text on each cat includes "Don't F*ck With My Pussy", "Pussy", "No F*cking Comment", "Who Was I Going to Tell?", "I Am Not A Victim", "Hands Off My Pussy!", "Sh*tty Kitty" and "My Name is Not Crumpet!"
