Description

Welcome to the Dior Talks series themed around the 5th edition of Dior Lady Art and hosted by Paris-based journalist Katya Foreman. For this year’s event, ten artists and collectives from around the world have participated in a game of metamorphosis by rendering the iconic Lady Dior handbag as a unique piece of art.

Today’s guest, Delhi-based feminist artist Bharti Kher, discusses the symbolism of the bindi, an emblem of the third eye and the common thread in her creative universe, and explains how she used this traditional Indian sign and its inherent codes, language and poetry to transform the iconic Lady Dior bag.

“When I work with the bindis, I take something that is a representation and a sign, and then I just run with it,” says the artist who, for this collaboration, created two bags with different “energies” — one featuring an explosion of fiery red bindis, which “is about a night out with my girlfriends,” and a quieter, more sophisticated version.  Explosions of snake bindis — incarnations of life force, transformation and healing — create hypnotic wave movements over the handbag.

Tune in to hear all about the journey behind Bharti Kher’s fun, colorful and irreverent spin on a House icon.
