    Casey Jenkins self-insemination project funding pulled

    Artist, 41, is FURIOUS after her $25,000 funding for livestreamed ‘self-insemination’ project with donor sperm is cancelled as council pulls out

    • Casey Jenkins furious after $25,000 taxpayer grant pulled from her art project
    • Ms Jenkins was going to use the money to self-inseminate with donor sperm
    • The 41-year-old would broadcast the attempts on the internet every month
    • She said the project was to challenge ‘heteronormative parenting narratives’ 

    An artist who planned to livestream her attempts at getting pregnant through self-insemination has had her $25,000 taxpayer grant pulled. 

    Casey Jenkins, 41, was left furious after she learned the news through a letter from The Australian Council for the Arts on Thursday.  

    The organisation had promised her the large sum of money in August for her project titled ‘Immaculate’.

    Ms Jenkins was going to use the money to try and self-inseminate herself with donor sperm every month, news.com reported.

    She would broadcast her attempts online in an artistic bid to ‘elevate the experience of queer reproduction and disrupt heteronormative parenting narratives’.

    However the council has since walked back on their promise based on ethical grounds.

    Chief executive Adrian Collette sent a letter to Ms Jenkins stating the reasons.   

    ‘We cannot be party to any act that could result in bringing a new life into the world.

    ‘The ethical issues that will inevitably surround this project, possibly for years to come, are not something the Council can take responsibility for.’

    Ms Jenkins took to Facebook to air her frustration about the surprising news.

    ‘Australia Council for the Arts released a statement yesterday regarding their decision to try to break our contract and remove their support for my IMMACULATE project which I found shocking, misleading and defamatory,’ the post read.

    ‘Council imply that I have done or may do something illegal and that I have been misleading in the production of my work.’

    Ms Jenkins goes on to say the project has not changed since it was initially approved for funding earlier this year. 

    ‘Contrary to what they have stated the presentation of the IMMACULATE work IS in keeping with my original grant proposal,’ the post read.

    ‘In their reasoning for rescinding my grant they cited directly to me unspecified ‘ethical’ concerns as central to their decision, and I want to assert that there is nothing remotely unethical in my actions or my work.’

    Ms Jenkins has vowed to push ahead with her project despite the shock news.

    The 41-year-old is known for her daring projects which include knitting from a ball of yarn that was placed in her vagina for 28 days.

    In another project, she chewed yarn and tinned food into a paste and wrote on the ground, ‘You will lay her life to waste’.
