Sarah Morris - Crease Folds
This small book chronicles the making of ‘Strange Magic’ (2014), a film by artist Sarah Morris. The film surveys the Vuitton empire’s production and manufacturing of luxury goods as the source of capital for the construction of the Louis Vuitton Foundation. Morris deconstructs the mechanisms behind this cultural currency – fashion, fragrance, champagne, and architecture – to probe France’s national identity and the inherent fantasy in the concept of luxury. Morris had met Oscar-winning screenwriter Roger Avary in 2012, and asked him to write a fictional text about her, also included here. The book thus becomes a juxtaposition of fiction and fantasy in the making of an artwork.
