This is the Sticazzi Pin Brooch.
Cosima believes that humor will be able to save us or at least makes us talk about topics otherwise difficult to accept.
The Sticazzi series has been created for the Covid-19 pandemic, not to underestimate the risks of this highly contagious virus, but to try to make the best of it, in Italian Stocazzo is a slang expression that is used similarly to 'Screw it'. Here represented as a tiny pink penis.
Using pieces of body to adorn other bodies helps us appreciate the joy that comes from the acceptance of our 'Thingness', as the '70s contemporary artist Paul Thek defined it, influenced by his visit to the Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo.
The Thingness collection is inspired to the artist's work and features eyes, boobies, teeth and legs. The Thingness collection is deadly serious but looks fun.
