Kulikovska's work fits in with a wider tradition of (female) artists using the vagina as a subject. Famous examples include Casey Jenkins, who inserted a skein of wool into her vagina and used knitting needles to unravel it in a 28-day long performance piece called "Casting Off My Womb" in 2013. British sculptor Jamie McCartney collected hundreds of casts labia to create the "Great Wall of Vagina" in 2014. Also in 2014, Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi successfully crowdfunded the 3D printing of a Kayak in the shape of her vagina.
Later this year, the Tate Modern will be hosting a retrospective of works by Georgia O'Keeffe, whose flower paintings have almost exclusively been interpreted as sexual, regardless of O'Keeffe's vehement resistance to this interpretation.
In an interview with The Guardian, Tate Modern's director of exhibition Achim Borchardt-Hume said " the decision to host a major O’Keeffe retrospective also came from an awareness that the contribution of women to 20th-century art was “still at risk of being overshadowed by men”.
