Meichen Lu : Intercourse with My Vulva

Experimental

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Brief:
HI, I'm Meichen, but you can just call me April.I'm focusing on creating a vulva character to represent both women and vulva in a more direct and clear way. And I‘m working on combining feminist social issues with graphic novel to reflect the common social phenomena. I also explore plus size female body, and support no-standard beauty.
Additional Information:
I weaken the shape of the human body and focusing on building the character of female genitals, and creating a graphic novel that reflects the most common feminist social issues ‘rape’ with a vagina as the main character. I use the embroidery to present my work because I have added some stereotype elements about gender in my graphic novel. For example, blue and pink, skateboards, and embroidery.
