Leading contemporary artists delegate whole sections of the production of their works. Increasingly today, contemporary art is the result of a collective effort. Engineers, designers, architects, artisans, workers, glass-makers, smelters, blacksmiths, coppersmiths, jewelry-makers, "highbrows" and "helping hands", whether they possess high-tech or ancestral know-how -they all work in the shadows to produce today's art. This documentary follows the production of three works from conception to completion. These include Korean artist Lee Ufan's large scale work of boulders and metal sheets installed in the Versailles Palace Gardens; Norwegian conceptual artist Marianne Heske's giant bronze doll head placed in the Torshovdalen Park in Oslo; and French artist Daniel Buren's children's blocks exhibited at the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
