作家情報 Artist Information

As an artist, I focus on my own vagina as the motif for my art.
My work is against discriminative/ignorant treatment of the vagina
My artwork is shown on this blog.
My vagina was scanned by a 3D printer and was expanded to 2-meters size as the kayak which is titled ” まんぼーと(TheVagina Boat).”
I was able to row in a boat modeled after my own vagina.

I make art pieces with my vagina, which I would rather call Manko(MK).
I thought it was just funny to decorate my vagina and make into a diorama,
but I was very surprised to see how upset people get when they see my works or even hear me say the word Manko.
Even when a TV station asked me to be on their show, they wouldn’t dare let me say DECO-MAN because “MAN” is from the taboo word “Manko”.
Why did I start making these kind of art pieces?
It’s because I had never seen the vagina of others and I was too self-conscious of mine.
I did not know what a vagina should look like at the same time, so I thought mine was abnormal. Manko and vagina, have been such a taboo in Japanese society.
Penis, on the other hand, has been used in illustrations and has become a part of pop culture. But vagina has never been so cute.
Vagina has been thought to be obscene because its been overly hidden; although it is just a part of a woman’s body.
I wanted to make vagina more casual and pop. That’s how I came to make a vagina lampshade, a remote-controlled vagina car, vagina accessories, a vagina smartphone case, and so on.
I wrote a comic book of DECO-MAN (Bunka sha).

I also host workshops for women who want to make their own DECO-MAN.
I hold it regularly, once a month. I create a model of a woman’s vagina using a dental impression agent. To strengthen the model , gypsum is used, and the model is then decorated I take vagina with a dental impression agent and strengthen the model with gypsum and do the decorations. *I create it using a modeling agent that is kind to the body for each person individually in a private room. As for modelling it, customers need not to worry. Because customers paint with Vaseline and model it themselves, pubic hairs are not shaven. In the case of menstruation, a tampon is used. A person who I had difficulty dealing with was in menopause. It is all right if customers come without their own materials, but they are welcome to bring their own (decorations parts) if they want to do the decorations themselves.
The final product is shown on a photo album.
