During preview week, you could watch art world celebrities in suits and elegant shoes or dresses and high-heels trying to find their ways through this mud without getting all too dirty. At the center of the mud installation, there was a classic white reclining nude. Nevertheless, you could not see the face, as a live beehive covered the entire head.
