“The Making of” is part of a new series of videos, outcome of workshops at the Areszt Śledczy w Warszawie-Grochowie, a women’s prison on the outskirts of Warsaw. For this video, Zmijewski organized a beauty and fashion session. Accompanied by a hairdresser, a make-up artist, a stylist, and a photographer, the artist and his team transformed a group of inmates into stylish and cultivated women. They increasingly regained self-confidence, culminating in a final catwalk in the prison corridor as an expression of grandeur.
