The recently hacked nude photos of Hunger Games star, Jennifer Lawrence, and model, Kate Upton, will be on display, life-sized and unaltered, as part of the gallery's "Fear Google" campaign.

The photos of JLaw, Upton and hundreds of other A-list celebrities were hacked and posted online Sunday, prompting the FBI to investigate the breach.

The artist behind the installation, who goes by the name "XVALA", has been collecting the photos of celebrities "in their most vulnerable and private moments" from Google for more than seven years.

The collection contains pictures of Britney Spears with her head shaved, as well as leaked nudes of Scarlett Johannson. XLAVA calls the show "No Delete" and wants to use it to demonstrate the permanence of material that makes its way onto the web.

"We share our secrets with technology," XVALA said in a statement. "And when we do, our privacy becomes accessible to others. In today's culture, everybody wants to know everything about everybody. An individual's privacy has become everyone else's business. It has become cash for cache."

The exhibit will open Oct. 30 at CACA's The Showroom, which is located in the Warehouse Arts District in St. Petersburg, Florida. It will be hosted by Los Angeles-based publicist, Cory Allen.

"XVALA appropriating celebrity compromised images and the overall 'Fear Google' campaign has helped strengthen the ongoing debate over privacy in the digital era," Allen said in a statement. The commentary behind this show is a reflection of who we are today. We all become 'users' and in the end, we become 'used.'"
