Artwork vandalized in Gothenburg – Västerbotten Courier

For several weeks, the artist and graffiti writer Carolina Falkholt working on a mural for the exhibition Hall of fame in Gothenburg with. But now her work destroyed.

The painting depicted a woman’s genitals and Falkholt see the vandalism as an attack on femininity in general.

– I think that it is problematic to have a woman’s body in public space. It must be veiled and vandalized immediately. While sexuality as packaged for sale is completely okay to have in the public domain. It is so tragic that it will be so. It is a blow to all women that the painting was vandalized, she says to Göteborgs-Posten.

At this writing the artist that she will re-erect the painting at its next show in Kungälv.

2014 created Falkholts art headlines when her mural depicting parts of the body of a woman with a vagina in the middle was stopped by the Nyköping. A year later, the painting unveiled. She has held a number of solo exhibitions and made numerous public works.

On September 7 debut album she “Word, Sound and sex”.
