Art

Visual artist Mona Orgel began working on her visionary art project in 2014. Her initial interest was sparked during a game of LaLotería (opens new window) with friends Marie and Alice. While playing, they openly discussed their concerns regarding body image and sexuality. It was here that the nickname for vulva (papaya) first came up. And the rest is history, or rather her-story.

Mona dedicates herself to a sensitive spot in society surrounding the varying appearance of female body parts and their misleading portrayal in the media. Frequently, media images (especially within the porn industry) feature vulvas with the inner labia hardly or not at all visible, seemingly tucked into the outer labia. This misleading representation can lead to body issues among female viewers.

Drawing on individual sources - recorded history, oral folktales and her friends' knowledge on the subject - Mona collects different references to female genitalia as inspiration for her art. From clams to clutches, images feature fluffy and not-so-fluffy creatures as well as a line of organic objects like purses or parcels.

What began as single artworks presented at various art shows soon evulved into an interactive experiment: visitors were encouraged to write (but often also happily painted) their vulva knowledge on plain paper provided by the artist and titled "How about where you came from?". The result? A large amount of vulva wisdom and creativity! While some sources have yet to be confirmed, a large portion is already available for your pleasure!

Having previously been exhibited in various art spaces, a selection of 54 artworks now serve as motifs for Bing({'})h, the artist's version of the regular bingo game. Based on the idea of interaction from previous art shows, the game is designed to engage players in the debate concerning the physical appearance of female genitalia.

Thanks to genius Basti, Bing({'})h is now available to play online (opens new window). Just get a group of friends, family or colleagues together and enjoy the ride.

About

Let's Talk About abalones, octopuses, cats and courgettes! What do they have in common? That’s right! They’re all creative expressions for the vulva! How so? All of the above are nicknames for "vagina", or to be more precise, "vulva". The vagina is only one of many important parts of the female organ. Didn't know that? Neither did Bing({'})h's inventor Simone Orgel before she started on her exciting expedition through the wonderful world of vulvas. Today, she hopes to share her explorative adventures with all you marvelous Vulverines out there. ...more
