Sophia Wallace on Cliteracy

Artist Sophia Wallace discusses CLITERACY her epic, mixed media project which explores a paradox; the global obsession with sexualizing female bodies in a world that is illiterate when it comes to female sexuality. The above video is directed and produced by Amon Focus

I first heard about Cliteracy in 2012, when I made the re-post New York – Cliteracy by Sophia Wallace about the exhibition of Cliteracy, and artist talk by Sophia Wallace at Dumbo Arts Center. – Now my European facebook friends have started sharing ‘Cliteracy 101: Artist Sophia Wallace Wants You To Know The Truth About The Clitoris‘ an article by Dominique Mosbergen of the Huffington Post, and I have taken this as a reminder that I should google Sophia’s art project and see what has happened to it, her life and creative practice. In the above video Sophia talks about her work with the art project Cliteracy – using both fine art aestetics and street art to spread the word about the secret of the anatomy of the clitoris. Enjoy!
