"The Bride"


Joana Vasconcelos' huge 'chandelier' made of o.b. tampons at the Ajuda National Palace, Lisbon.
This piece was censored on her exhibition in Versailles so, French guys here is your chance to see it and, by the way, Happy Bastille Day!

Tampons? To each his or her own, I guess. Would you hang it in your house? Looks like a deranged gourd!

Surprising that it was censored in Versailles. That makes no sense at all! I can see it being censored in Oala, but Versailles? Nah... :)
