A witty take on Gustave Courbet’s notorious work “L’origine du monde”, a study of his favourite model’s genitalia, which scandalised late 19th century France. Juliet had been experiencing a great deal of censorship when she posted her works online, so she created this image to challenge and defeat social media algorithms.
