If you're in Brussels, Belgium anytime soon, you might want to check out the recently opened "Musee du Slip" or in English, the celebrity underwear museum! Artist Jan Bucquoy has been collecting the undergarments of famous people for some time now, and he's finally decided to share them with the world.
In the collection faded blue boxer shorts from Belgium's finance minster sit next to a G-string from classic porn star Brigitte Lahaie. All underwear must have been worn by the person for at least one day. There are also photos of people like Nicolas Sarkozy or Margaret Thatcher with underwear superimposed on their heads. Bucquoy explains his vision:
"I want to create poetry with everyday things by putting them in a different context. I say underpants are art. Put them in a frame and create a new way of looking at the world."
Do you like his idea of art?
