This lithograph “Tied Up II” has been produced on the occasion of the exhibition « Tenderizer », currently on view at Galerie Maria Bernheim in Zürich until October 31st, 2020.

The sensuality, humor, awkwardness, and grotesque qualities of femininity are encapsulated in the meager tampon string. This little tail is so banal, but also ridiculous, strange and particular to the female experience. Drawing out and expanding upon the string’s absurdity yields a particularly humorous potential: what if it was so long it could become entangled with a fellow tampon wearer? Hands become bound, bodies stuck together, and even more surreal, if the two ends were lit on fire, whose would burn first? The figure’s grace and sensuality are undercut by a feeling of repulsion and crude whimsy, emotional dualities that echo the feeling of living in a female body.

Sarah Slappey

Sarah Slappey is born in Columbia, South Carolina,  in 1984. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

The paintings of Sarah Slappey contort expectations of the female nude in ways that eroticize the distasteful and brutalize the sensual. Sexual puns and bathroom jokes are squeezed into compositions of fleshy surreality that bulge and squirt within the picture frame. Feminine symbols and phallic objects from tampons to pearls, cigarettes and lipstick are reframed as kinky props of evolved bodies condensed to sexual features. In doing so, Slappey seeks to topple a history of male dominated female depiction, taking control of an invented body of imagery, while translating its ability to remain provocative and sensuous.
