Passers by the Kunst-Werke Institute For Contemporary Art in Berlin will notice something special there: a giant sculpture of Rihanna’s decapitated body. Aside from her magnificent figure, the synthetic corpse’s likeness is easily recognizable thanks to the pop singer’s iconic tattoos, but the face painted to its chest doesn’t bear much resemblance to her own. The work was produced by Colombian artist Juan Sebastián Peláez and installed outside the museum last Friday as an exhibition of the Berlin Biennale For Contemporary Art, which takes place throughout the month of June. Its name, Ewaipanoma (Rihanna), refers to a fabled race of headless people.
While we’re talking pop, we suggest you check out Pop Talk, a column that enlisted underground musicians like Aïsha Devi and Scuba to review mainstream albums from the likes of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Björk.
