Know Art: Sharing the work of Artists



Pictured is the chandelier hanging in the Arsenale during the 2005 Venice Beinalle. The work is called 'The Bride' by the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. And this chandelier turns out to be made out of 14,000 shiny wrapped tampons.

Among a series of other issues, at the 2005 Beinalle, there was mass media concern that there was over feminisation of the event. There is further discussion and document of this at the source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4111376.stm
