“Lopped Off: Women Drawing Penises from Memory” is an exhibition and publication that seeks to articulate and complicate the representation of the penis in the hands and minds of women.
Rendering penises from memory, self-identified women participants from both art and non-art backgrounds created approximately 300 drawings (an estimated 4,440 square inches of disembodied penises) to wallpaper the gallery and fill the catalogue.
Working within a phallologocentric culture where the penis is typically depicted (by males) as unfailingly erect, virile, and desirable, “Lopped Off” attempts to create a “multi-phallused” space that not only permits but requires imagination, interpretation, authorship, reinvention, and play.
