Make A Penis And Vagina Out Of Clay
New York, c. 1974

Video by Paul Tschinkel

"Make a Penis and Vagina Out of Clay" extended the penis and vagina drawing series into both sculpture and performance. The catalyst was art critic Edit deAk who asked if she could bring by a group of students from the University of Michigan who she was escorting on a tour of the New York art world. The students proved to be eager participant / subjects. After I explained Conceptual Art and the subject of the piece, Jim Cobb, a ceramics instructor at Hunter College, gave some rudimentary lessons on how to manipulate the clay. Paul Tschinkel videotaped as the students went to work creating their clay genitalia. The event culminated with interviews in which each participant explained the process that went into their unique creations.
