Cream Athens presents I AM A VULVA, a project by Effie Emmanouilidi in collaboration with her art collective Planet Sisterhood, which takes place at TAF, The Art Foundation, in Monastiraki from Thursday 4 May 2023 to Sunday 7 May 2023.

The power of the earth meets the power of femininity and gives birth to dozens of colorful, hand-made ceramic vulvas, which will fill the TAF space and be surrounded by projections and installations with protagonists to be femininities of contemporary Greece. The exhibition is surrounded by a multitude of activities such as open discussions with the psychologist and sex therapist Sexethos and the feminist influencer and columnist The Abstract Girl, a DJ set by Myrto Antoniadis and a sound bath session by Vefi Valsami.

In a society that often suppresses diversity and insists on downplaying the power of femininity, the project of EffieEmmanouilidi, mapping the new social reality, aims to reconstruct the stereotypes concerning gender, and to highlight the value of our nature.

With a pop aesthetic, I AM A VULVA invites us to constantly question what we are. Are we what society and its standards dictate and command us to be? Do we finally recognize how often the femininity we all hide within us gets underestimated and considered a weakness, regardless of gender, height and size?

I AM A VULVA will help us discover the multifaceted power of femininity, which makes us unique, beautiful, and always enough.
