♂ Anti-Fertility Garden


In response to the punitive reproductive rights legislation recently meted out by the Texas state government, a male anti-fertility garden was planted in the yard of Sala Diaz, an exhibition space in San Antonio, Texas.

The garden contains elements of plants alleged to cause temporary to permanent sterility in men, including neem, papaya, cotton and myrtle. Some of these plant materials are found in a body-sized soap painting made by Sophy Naess; this soap is displayed in the garden next to a homemade one-man hot tub, which has also proven to be an effective measure in reducing the quality of human sperm.
