Karen LeCocq Feather

Karen LeCocq Feather Cunt Wood, plastic, velvet, feathers 12 x 10 x 19 inches 1971 remade 1996 In the Feminist Art Program at California Institute of the Arts in the early 1970s, we were exploring the experience of what it means to be a woman. We were looking at societal stereotypes, the positive, negative and downright degrading. We explored the "bad" names and slurs that labeled and degraded women, reframing them to be positive even celebrated. "Feather" may be "a cunt," but she is lovely, she proud of her name and cannot be harmed by the hateful words of others. 50
