A film work of cinematic scale, Provenance traces in reverse the global trade in furniture from the Indian city of Chandigarh.

This multi-element film work explores the journey taken by modernist chairs from their original location in the city of Chandigarh, India, to auction houses and collectors' homes in Europe and America. Created by New York based artist Amie Siegel, the artwork looks at the use and value of such objects within these different contexts.
