Artist Visit – Japan
1st – 13th June 2022
I will be visiting Japan for the first time in summer 2022. My itinerary will take in Tokyo and several cities in search of appropriate galleries and museums to exhibit my work.
As a huge Japanophile it is amazing to me I have never visited the country. As well as admiring the food and contemporary art cultures I have been an enthusiastic collector of shunga for many years. An exhibition of The Great Wall of Vagina planned for Tokyo in 2013 was cancelled due to its branding as an obscenity by the Tokyo police (see article). Since then the country’s censorship of the arts and its uneasy relationship with erotica has fascinated me. I have corresponded with Japanese artists and read much about their history of erotic art, which for many years was considered taboo. My work has also featured frequently in the Japan Daily Press and Weekly Gendai publications. At last I have a chance to experience the culture first hand and forward my cause to exhibit my vulva artworks in Japan.
