Take a closer look…this is not your average chandelier.
A Noiva (The Bride) by Joana Vasconcelos
A Noiva (The Bride) by Joana Vasconcelos, via Le CentQuatre
At first glance, this is just a gigantic (as in 5m high) chandelier. But with a closer inspection, you’ll discover that this sculpture by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos is actually made up of tampons. Yes, tampons. Over 14,000 of them!
A Noiva is at Le CentQuatre in Paris until mid-September 2012. Joana Vasconcelos also has an amazing exhibit at Versailles until the end of September 2012.
Many thanks to CC for sending this my way.
