This artist is asking for dirty underwear to make a quilt for a pretty amazing reason
We’re all about art, especially art of the feminist sort, but even we were confused when we learned that one artist is collecting dirty underwear for a quilt project. Naturally, we decided to hear them out, and we’re SO glad we did. This artist is collecting used underwear to make a political statement, and we’re SO here for it.
Coralina Meyer, an artist based in New York, is working on what they call a “National Underwear Audit,” which basically means they’re collecting a whole lotta used underwear. Why? To start a series of what Meyer calls “Cunt Quilts.” Now that’s a major feminist art project!
Like, LOL. This is amazing.
We literally never would have come up with this, but we’re so glad someone did. It’s like recycling, but for the most artistic reason.
TBH, times are rough for many of us. We can all use a little bit of art to get us through, especially f it helps form a sense of community like this project does. If you wanna send your own undies along, ship ’em to Lambastic, PO box 220417, 66 Meserole Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222-9997.
