The Lockit as imagined by Ugo Rondine
“My ambition is for Paris to creep into my composition, and for the bag, by some optical illusion, to appear as one of its monuments.”
-Ugo Rondine as quoted in Stephane Gerschel’s “Louis Vuittone ‘Icons'”
Swiss artist, Ugo Rondine, attempted making Louis Vuittone’s The Lockit as a monument in Paris by hanging the bag on a wall adjacent to a window which opens up into the city. With use of a color filter he creates enough unreality of the outside world to become a part of his canvas.
