One of the most original and well-executed artworks I’ve seen lately, Joana Vasconcelos “Marylin” will be auctioned off on Tuesday, at Christie’s, in London.

Made out of hundreds of stainless steel pans and covers, Marylin was inspired by the high-heel shoes worn by Marylin Monroe in the infamous clip from “The Seven Year Itch”, when the blond bombshell walks over an air-vent.

Through her stainless steel work of art, Joana Vasconcelos points out that modern-day women are expected to look beautiful in public, and do all the work around the house. Despite the seemingly feminist message, Ms. Vasconcelos is actually an advocate for equal human rights.

The 13ft by 9.8ft stainless steel pan Marylin is expected to sell for a sum between $155,000 and $233,550.

Spoiler for translate by me:

melalui karya seninya, Joana Vasconcelos menunjukkan bahwa zaman modern diharapkan perempuan terlihat cantik di depan umum, dan melakukan semua pekerjaan di sekitar rumah. walaupun pesannya agak feminis, tetapi Ms Vasconcelos sebenarnya pembela hak asasi manusia.
