A.F.Vandevorst have sculpted a life-size sculpture of a sleeping woman. This wax woman embedded with 250 kg of candle wicks was made by Lenn Cox.
Over the one month course of the Arnhem Mode Biennale 2011, the candle burnt down day by day, melting and transforming throughout the duration of the exhibition.

‘ Upon entering the room, we found models lying on beds. Dresses and skirt were arranged from pillowcases; diagonally distorted draperies formed shirts, and pleated fabric was sewn into skirts. We took photos fanatically. We could have a close look at the clothes and see all the details. The girls on the beds had no make-up, and they did not seem to care about the wrinkles in their dresses or their dishevelled hair. Eventually, they started to rise one by one, and the show had begun. A very unique stage effect that capsized conventional shows, where you have to line up in a long queue and wait a long time for the opening and you don’t even get to see the whole model’s figure.
