The Architecure Of A Bra

Conceptual artist Vito Acconci created Adaptable Wall Bra in 1990.


Made of steel bars, plaster, canvas, audio equipment, and electric lights the work explores the dynamic between public and private, in terms acts and objects, yes; but living spaces as well. Each cup of this bra has seating, and when you sit inside you are surrounded with music and the sounds of breathing. Most intimate, yes?


The artist also created Ground Bra, which clearly explores spaces in a much broader, even more public, sense.
