The video is showing in the Lady Dior As Seen By exhibition that showcases world renowned artists such as Nan Goldin, Arnaud Pyvka, Bruce Weber, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh and Koichiro Doi. The exhibition features more than seventy exceptional works of art that pay tribute to the Lady Dior bag.
The video depicts a pure white Lady Dior Bag as its being magically formed and built out of translucent melted wax. The video was made by filming the melting of a wax sculpture of a wax bag and then projecting the shots backwards.
The video is shown next to Mona Oren's elegant wax sculpture of the bag, giving an unspoken dialog between sculpture and video.
