Bon Scott's Crotch
The Age reported today that the late, great Bon Scott has been uniquely honored with his own piece of artwork created by Melbourne artist Cecilia Fogelberg for her new exibit, Super Groupie.
The Super Groupie exhibit was inspired by feminist writer, Germaine Greer, who boasted of her ability to get backstage while other fans merely hung around hoping to get a glimpse of their rock 'n' roll idols.
The exhibit is now open to the public at Craft Victoria in Melbourne and consists of "hand-stitched figures of some Australian male rock'n'rollers. Made of wire and material, the figures' instruments, often become extensions of their, ahem, manhoods." .
According to the article, Fogelberg is a dedicated rock'n'roll fan and the figures in her show "represent her musical journey since arriving in Australia from Sweden in 1999."
"Soon after arriving she found herself at St Kilda's Greyhound Hotel, where many of the men in her show often played. It was appropriate, given she'd listened to AC/DC while growing up in Sweden."
Bon Scott gets his own special piece in the show consisting of pair of strategically filled out jeans. (Pictured above from the front and the back.)
