Apparently the blossoming abortion artist Aliza Shvarts, who Carol mentions below, has a penchant for the vaseline/latex glove medium.

Before she artificially inseminated herself in order to have multiple abortions for her latest project she created something she calls "Disarticulation" showcased here on Yale's website.

The materials listed for it include "plaster, vaseline, towels, rubber bands, latex gloves."

Update:
It also appears Schvarts has somewhat of a fascination with her ahem, womanly functions.

For those of you wondering what this lovely young woman looks like I found a youtube of her. You can watch her literally get on her soapbox to blast power and patriarchy below.
