Vuitton Nana


Based in Chicago, Chilean-Japanese artist Kazuki Guzmán creates whimsical sculptural works that are activated by everyday materials, which range from embroidered meat to sculpted chewing gum. In BEST IF USED BY (a group exhibition organized by Houston Center for Contemporary Craft's Curatorial Fellow, Sarah Darro), the artist presented Vuitton Nana, a banana that he needle worked with the logo of the illustrious high-fashion brand.

From ripe to rotten, Vuitton Nana was was documented every three days to capture the transformation of the piece.
