Joana Vasconcelos

If you're into "embroidery and crochet, sex and simulacra" plus tampons, this is the show for you: I Will Survive, an exhibition by Portuguese ... er ... "artist" Joana Vasconcelos at Haunch of Venison Gallery, London. Shown is Trigger (2009), a nostalgic reference to Roy Roger's horse. Most of her exhibits look more like Victorian throwbacks than modern art, but in February a pair of her 10ft stilettos made from stainless steel kitchen pans sold for £505,000. The Telegraph has posted an online slideshow of her stuff (title link). The exhibition runs until 25 September.
