Bra Spangled Banner- An exhibition by Jamie Mc Cartney

Exhibition on During opening hours

Jamie takes images of hundreds of people to build up these photographs. Like his famous sculpture, The Great Wall of Vagina, they are beautiful and deftly thought provoking. During the show he will be creating new bra flags with visitors volunteering as models. 

A flag is a symbol, as is the act of subverting it. People assign power to these symbolic objects, so by using them in his artworks Jamie recycles and refocuses that emotional power.
