Francesco Vezzoli, whose past projects have included Lady Gag playing piano at the LACMA, collaborates with the high fashion house to create a installation that is sure to comment on the decadence of our time.
If there is one art Francesco Vezzoli excels at, it is persuasion. The Italian video and conceptual artist has the knack of getting famous people to participate in ever more outlandish projects. In 2006, he charmed Helen Mirren, Benicio del Toro and Gore Vidal into Versace-designed togas, in order to make a film trailer for an imaginary remake of Caligula. In 2009 he unveiled Greed, an ad for a fictitious perfume directed by Roman Polanski and featuring the actors Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams grappling on the floor.
