This is a very cool shot. I like the extra woman in the mirror. She’s kinda creepy! 🙂
Cheers. The other woman’s appearance in the photo was an unexpected little extra. One of those fortunate moments that are always very welcome.
“Photographers snip snap
Take your time she’s only burning”
Did no one put her out?
Haha, it wasn’t like that.
We wouldn’t want her to be put out :O)
It would be ideal for an Eno installation, but maybe not for sales.
I’m guessing at prices which would be like burning money.
You are on fire with the puns!
Well, I wasn’t expecting that 🙂 Her headwear looks made up from a fan of flaming dango balls -mmm tasty.
Can’t deny it’s an interesting installation but I’m not a fan of his work. It’s certainly striking (like the Grace Jones image) but I much prefer the other J-PG, Jean-Paul Gaultier, when it comes to imagery. That said I do like Goude’s Louis Vuitton “Backstage”.
Was the other lady waiting her turn? I can’t imagine holding that pose for long would be easy.
Did you make a Chanel purcase while there ?
Something very different eh? Nice to mix things up a bit.
I wasn’t all that familiar with his work — apart from those iconic Grace Jones photos. And to be honest, I only went ‘cos my wife suggested it. But we both thoroughly enjoyed it. A nice mix of Photos, artwork and video, plus the two ladies gracefully moving round the venue, singing and doing the fire thing. Got lucky with the second one in the reflection. She was just passing by. The video element included his Backstage work too.
But nah, no Chanel purchase. In fact, when we walked in, we were immediately asked if we were looking for the exhibition. Clearly don’t fit the Chanel customer profile!
The more I look at this it seems like Kaohame with a bit of smoke and mirrors.
Looking at it again with that in mind, I can see what you mean. In fact it’s hard not to now. To be fair though, in real life it was really quite a spectacle. Especially so with the singing. Made it quite otherworldly.
