Certainly seems like "performance art", don't you think?

-- Australian performance artist Casey Jenkins admits that her signature engagement is "confining" and "slightly uncomfortable," but that "Casting Off My Womb" is nonetheless an important work. Jenkins spends 28-day cycles knitting cloth from wool that has been inserted into her vagina -- symbolizing the creation of "life" emerging from the natural female cycle. The output, she said, records a female life in all its natural states.(Jenkins' work is perhaps borrowed from classic performance work by the artists Carolee Schneeman, in 1975's "Interior Scroll," and Yoko Ono, in 1965's "Cut Piece.")[The Independent (London), 12-17-2013]
