Exactly 24 hours, not a minute more, was what lasted the ephemeral “imaginary museum” by Prada, concept of the Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli, between January 24 and 25 at Palais d’Iena in Paris.
A worship to the eternal allure of femininity, the museum was divided in 3 sections, historic, contemporary and forgotten each one inspired by a particular museum decor.
In the main room, pink neon lights gave the impression of being in a huge metal cage. The effect was incredibly beautiful and modern.
Through interpretations of classical sculptures that make reference to contemporary divas, Francesco says that “They are my icons turned into sculptures and placed on marble pedestal “.
