Despite these genitals being clearly in an aroused state, they are rather more comical than erotic, all waving about at jaunty angles. The whimsical title ‘4×4’ (four rows of four penises) is a pun referring to the male ego being inextricable from their dicks and their cars. Men’s insecurities around their genitals are often come from pornography. We didn’t use flaccid penises because it’s their erections that concern men more. It is human nature to want to know where we fit in. It’s a common response to hear them say – “Ok, now I get what the vagina wall is all about!”
These panels are constructed from fibreglass casts taken from male volunteers in exactly the same way as The Spice of Life. In fact the majority of them are the same men as in that museum piece. Their presentation is in the same style of satin finish, welded aluminium frames as the vulva panels. They are available in many different layouts but in a limited edition of only six of each.You may also choose to commission panels in any size and shape or multiple panel arrays as well. Your panel can contain random penis casts or you may choose your favourites. They may be cast specifically for you from your own chosen model/s. Hence even within the editions, each panel may be completely different.
This piece was used by the director of the French Film, Tristesse Club, 2014, as the backdrop to a key scene.
A similar penis wall that appeared in the TV show Fleabag in 2016 was influenced by this piece. The huge press generated by the sensational first showing of these genital works in 2012 has seen my work become widely influential, with genital castings now all the rage. Mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery!
