Of all the sights from the controversially no longer in the summer Bushwick Open Studios, the most beloved, perhaps, was the vagina truck furnished by House of Maybe in support of its art trucks display on Troutman Street (where the hottest dumpster in town was forcibly removed).
Organizers/”artists” participating in the genesis of the truck consisted of longtime Bushwickian enfants terribles We the Femmes. At the helm of the project was Anorexia Nervosa, in all her nude glory. She even let some lucky passersby get the opportunity to see her rip out her IUD for one impromptu segment of the performance piece. As she herself commented, “I think that’s when we really knew people were gonna wanna see the vagina truck beyond the time frame of BoS.”
And want to see it they do, with the many boys of Bushwick actually being the most enthusiastic about the project. Rand Mann, the founder of the Warlocks of Bushwick, has been particularly pleased with the display, remarking to The Burning Bush, “It’s just wonderful what women are capable of these days. I had no idea they could drive.” The vagina truck will stay outside of the House of Maybe for your viewing pleasure (or displeasure depending on how intimidated you are by its alien looks) through the end of the month.
