'Deflowering' is a new olfactory artwork by Peter de Cupere.

During one hour a statue made of frozen holy water melts. In the statue is a spot with real vaginal scent! When the Madonna melts the vaginal scent starts to mix with the holy water. In the room you start smelling the beauty of woman. When touching the melted liquid, the original vaginal scent stays on your finger for a long time.

The smell of the pussy is real vaginal scent conserved as odorous substance and realized by a professional lab. The smell is produced by movement and sweating in the female intimate area. It took years to manage to capture the treasured organic vaginal scent. The scent is a mix of different women, of different origin and is a tribute to the freedom of being a free woman, exploring your sexual desires.

The work was only during 2 hours on show, starting from the melting. After +/- 1 hour the vaginal scent appeared in the air. After melting, visitors were allowed to touch the melted Madonna and enjoy her scent of passion.





By exploiting the subjective, associative impact of smells, in combination with visual images, Peter De Cupere generates a kind of meta-sensory experience that goes beyond purely seeing or smelling. Plastic artist De Cupere paints with scents, produces olfactory objects, soap paintings and sculptures, creates video and live performances, makes three-dimensional drawings and builds poetic smell installations.
Peter is the founder of The Olfactory. He is s a visual artist working with fragrance and researcher at the Research Department at the Mad-Faculty, University College PXL in Hasselt, teaching Media Lab Fine Arts and coordinator of the Master Studio Art Vision Lab.
