Giuseppe Di Vietri has launched an appeal for donations of women’s bras – ideally red, white and green – for his planned installation, in a deconsecrated church in Salerno, Italy.
The title of the piece “Madre Patria” (Motherland) was originally produced, in a … smaller size (with only 150 bras) for the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification. The new installation – if they reach their goal – is part of Voci dal Sud art festival in Salerno.
200 bras have been received so far, but the artist remains optimistic that he’ll get the … support needs to complete his piece for the opening, slated for the 8th of August.
