The portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos is taking part in the project Art Wars, which challenged various artists to costumize a Stormtrooper helmet, created by Andrew Ainsworth for the Star Wars movies.
The result will be revealed to the public at Saatchi Gallery, in London, between October 9th and 13th. Among the invited artists are Jake and Dinos Chapman, Damien Hirst, David Bailey, Mr. Brainwash and Paul Fryer.
The project includes a series of posters that will be showcased for 4 weeks on London Underground's Regent's Street station, during Frieze London.
Art Wars was created by Ben Moore with the aim to raise funds to find his brother missing since 2003. At the end of the exhibition, the works will be auctioned and revenues will revert towards the 'Missing Tom' fund.
