Vagina Painting


Vagina Painting, otherwise known as Red Painting: Vagina Painting (After Kubota), VIVO Media Art Centre, 2017
In this performance, in homage to artist and Fluxus member Shigeko Kubota, Barry uses her body to create an abstract painting using red wine and gouache paint. Throughout this process she considers the phenomenological, or lived experiences, of queer, sexualized and gendered bodies in particular.  She is interested in the body as both object and subject, as well as the tension in this duality.


 “Brilliant and quietly challenging”
