In Paris, the Irish-born Miss Guinness has been the subject of speculation and gossip as the very public mistress of French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy (better known locally as BHL). Levy remains married to the much-admired French singer and actress Arielle Dombasle; consequently popular opinion has not weighed in Miss Guinness's favour. It seems rather provocative of Printemps to devote a series of windows to Miss Guinness's art project.
The displays feature fashion, sculptural ghost-like three-dimensional figures and ever-evolving screened images that interact with passers-by.
Some screens display collage-like images depicting Miss Guinness's background, as well as aspects of fashion and politics. Click photos to view detail.
Images of Daphne Guinness appear throughout the exhibit.
