Collection of knickers all in the name of art

Underwear student

An art student is collecting old underwear for her graduation exhibition in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province.

Yi Ci, a senior student of Hubei Institute of Fine Arts, posted a notice in the dormitory buildings in her bid to collect old underwear a couple of weeks ago.

The notice explained: "Yi Ci, majoring in motion pictures studies, is collecting any old underwear for her graduation work exhibition. Hope you can donate your old underwear in the box in the public bathroom. Your kind actions will make a great art work. Please join me!"

Yi Ci's work is titled 'Privacy' and donations so far have totalled over several hundred pairs of underwear.
