You have to.
Joana Vasconcelos is a Portuguese artist. In her sculptures and installations she plays with trivial objects and materials of daily life [such us doilies, knittings, pans, plastic cutlery (forks, knives and spoons) or even tampons!] giving them a sense and shape connected with traditional Portuguese values.
Visit her site at http://www.joanavasconcelos.com/ click on Work and enjoy! At Google Images “Joana Vasconcelos” you’ll find her work too.
At Museu Colecção Berardo, Lisbon, you can see many of her works from last 15 years altogether for the first time, till May 18th. I have to go to Lisbon!
