Large art installation draws the attention of far-right politicians loyal to Bolsanaro prompting a clash with what many call “leftist propaganda”.
The work titled ‘Diva’, is produced by artist Juliana Notari, who has drawn the ire of many conservatives who have called it a waste of time, money and effort.
Miss Notari explained the concept behind the installation in a Facebook post to clear up any misrepresentations –
“I use art to dialogue with issues that refer to gender issues from a female perspective combined with a cosmopocentric and anthropocentric western society. Currently these issues have become increasingly urgent. After all, it is by changing perspective of our relationship between humans and humans and nonhuman, that will allow us to live longer on that planet and in a less unequal and catastrophic society.”
Many have made commentaries on the piece with one commenter saying “Who do you lefties think you’re fooling? Apart from useful idiots on the left, of course”. Another said of the work “What hateful comments. What stupid and mediocre people Long live the vulva, the pussy exposed in these people’s face pick and cowardly”.
