The title of the edition, “Sheela na gig” refers to the figurative carvings found in medieval churches, which depict a naked women, displaying an exaggerated vulva. Hypothetically of Celtic origin and adopted by the Catholic church, they first appeared in the north of Spain and France in the 10th century, and then in UK and Ireland. Their meaning is uncertain: a talisman to ward off evil spirits, a fertility goddess or a condemnation of lust.

Aparicio has re-interpreted the character as a series of mirrors. For the artist, the Sheela na gig is a powerful figure; the figures in the mirrors are all joyful and comfortable in their own skin, the embodiment of big vagina energy.

All proceeds go to support Goldsmiths CCA’s programme.
