This piece is derived from Jamie’s larger mixed genital wall sculpture, The Spice of Life. As with most of Jamie’s genital works the intention is not to be erotic but to perform a similar function to The Great Wall of Vagina. It sidesteps eroticism, in the same way that the vagina panels are not erotic: the juxtaposition of so many, in a pure white formation, disassociate the sculpture from the body.
The title refers of Andy Warhol’s contention that in the future we’ll all be famous for 15 minutes but also asks are these fifteen penises minute, referring back to men’s obsession with size. Unlike the erections in 4×4, this is an altogether more sombre and contemplative work. It is human nature to want to know where we fit in but we rarely get a chance to observe the genitals of others with such unashamed and unhurried scrutiny.
