Shigeko Kubota

A Japanese Fluxus artist, Kubota is well known for both her collaboration with Yoko Ono, and her as being one of the first artists to adopt the portable video camera into her work. One of her most famous pieces is Vagina Painting, in which she painted with a brush attached to the crotch of her underwear, dipped in blood red paint. She is often interpreted as a feminist artist, however, she denies these claims saying, “I don’t think I can make any real contribution other than my work as an artist.”
