Earthly Mission



If you feel these purses resemble something that only women have, you are probably right as artist Suzanna Scott has explored their most feminine side indeed. Here’s the explanation:

“Before the days of debit cards the coin purse was a necessary item. Today there are a plethora of these kisslock pockets floating around in flea markets on and off-line. After soliciting friends on social media to assist me in gathering coin purses for this project I got down to business. The purses were cleaned (as needed!) and each one turned inside out. They are made of a variety of fabrics and leather. Some with one layer, others with multiple layers of fabric. I assess each one carefully and after a few pinches, tucks, folds and stitches I say voilà…..a vulva!”
