Currently Surina is working on her new series Pussy Galore. ‘Pussy Galore’ refers to an ‘abundant bucca’: a female word meaning mouth. It is also the name of the tough pilot from the James Bond series: the criminal ‘Amelia Earhart’ from the book and movie of the same name, Goldfinger. In that story the female character of Pussy Galore is portrayed as a self-aware and aggressive leader, instead of the usual victim annex sex-object.

In her series Pussy Galore Surina also portrays a different image of the female and especially her sexuality: the image of a woman who is sexually desiring and in the lead, and not just willing and receptive. In this alternative reality a woman can just as well be a forceful ‘player’ or ‘pimp’ instead of the man. She can also take (‘devour’) a man, like a man usually takes (‘penetrates’) a woman.

In this context the usual medical terms ‘vagina’ (meaning scabbard an receptive) and ‘penis’ (in the sense of penetrating) fall short. That's why these body parts are referred to with words like ‘bucca’ and ‘cibus’ (a manly word that means food. In Surina’s series Pussy Galore it's not the vagina, but the bucca that takes central stage.
