Since 2011 Jamie has been working on a new, very large vulva panel called MONDCIVITANO – The Women of the World. That piece will eventually include a cast of a woman from every country and territory in the world.
However, USA was one of the first countries to be cast and since then many women have asked to be a part of the work, only to be disappointed. So Jamie decided to create a second parallel artwork featuring a woman from every state in the United States, working title – American Pie.
The concept behind this artwork is multi-layered. On one level it will show that women all over the USA are united in combating the rise in unnecessary labiaplasties. The cost of trimming your labia in the USA is more than people in some other countries earn in a year. It’s a bonkers world. Whilst women in some parts of the world are wondering how they will eat and feed their children that day, in other places women are wondering if their genitals are pretty.
Which state one is from can be a tricky question to answer. Are we from the place we were born, the place we grew up, the place we live now or the place our parents came from? That is for the individual to decide. Our personal identities are tied up with place. It is a basic human need to belong.
In bright pink below is a list of states that are not yet cast as of our last update. The darker pink ones are done. If you’d like to get involved, please message us by clicking on your state. You’ll need to be able to visit our studios in the UK or Florida to be cast. Or you may be somewhere Jamie will be travelling so it is worth asking. As all his projects are self-funded, sadly as there is no budget for Jamie to fly all over the USA (fun as that would be!). But he does of course travel and will be posting on his artist page when and where. If you are determined to be the one to represent your state before it is taken, but you cannot get to the Jamie, he can travel to cast you, if at all possible, at your expense. You may choose to make use of it as a marketing exercise in which Jamie is happy to cooperate. Art has to be made somehow!
