During the 16 Days of Activism campaign, Jenny Nijenhuis and Nondumiso Msimanga’s public art collaboration with SoMa Art + Space in Maboneng will be unveiled. The 3600 used pairs of underwear strung over 1.2 kilometers of washing line will act as a backdrop for a performance piece by Msimanga, who will be wearing a wedding dress made of panties.
This project aims to bring awareness to South Africa’s rape crisis.
Along with the installation, various artivism events will take place in the streets of the Maboneng Precinct from November 25 through December 4.
Soma will also be hosting a linked exhibition: The Things We Do For Love
Please bring along a pair of new panties. These will be donated as part of rape kits.
