Deflowering-madonna2Deflowering of madonna in the BAD MOØN festival Antwerp

Music, art, chaos & doom curated by Jan Van Woensel

Location: Church Kievitsnest, Antwerpen

30.11.2014 ·· 18:00h

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 in Germany. 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 only will be on show during 2 hours, starting from the melting. After +/- 1 hour the vaginal scent will appear in the air. After melting, visitors are allowed to touch the melted Madonna and enjoy her scent of passion.




BAD MOON RISING is curator Jan Van Woensel's internationally traveling project themed around disturbance, transgression, melancholy and loss. Launched in 2007 in San Francisco (USA), the project traveled to venues in New York and St. Louis (USA), Brussels (BE), Amsterdam (NL) and Oslo (Norway) between 2008 and 2011.

BAD MOØN festivals is the long awaited sequel to BAD MOON RISING, and focuses on live music rather than on the presentation of contemporary art.

BAD MOON RISING and BAD MOØN festivals are the brainchild of independent curator, organizer, artist and musician Jan Van Woensel, noted that the title is respectfully borrowed from a song by Creedence Clearwater Revival and an album by Sonic Youth.

BAD MOØN festivals is based in Antwerp (BE)

Location: Church Kievitsnest, Provinciestraat 112, 2018 Antwerpen
