Pinar&Viola for Adidas

As Pinar&Viola, we were asked by Adidas Head Quarters in Germany, to rejuvenate their archival imagery. The assignment has been given by the beginning of 2016 in order to create intrigue for their flagship store in NYC which opened last week (beginning December 2016). During theis project, we payed regular visit to Adidas Headquarters in Herzogenaurach and befriended the curator of their archives.

As a result, we created a collection of images where adidas athletes come together in a ground with no space, time and gender. Inspired by Adidas’ innovation politcy, future-craft, we digitally hand crafted these images which would inspire sportsman of all age background for a stylistic and energetic way forward.

The images carry superstar athletes such as Derek Rose, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Harden, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Stan Smith, Zidane, Messi, together with the founder of Adidas, Adi Dassler.

This project was meant to go on the walls of their flagship store, on 5th avenue New York, yet because of change of direction, they remained as an internal vision-inspiration for Adidas.

Pinar&Viola x Print All Over Me NYC Exhibition

As part of New York textile Month, we made a collaboration with the super fun Print All Over Me from New York! We gave them our Healing Prints and they made items where you can spread healing in your everyday life. Sweatshirts, tablecloths, tote bags, clutches, with our prints varying from Mother Earth to Sexual Healing, Emancipation of Flowers to Silent Print. Last week, June 24th marked the celebration of our collaboration. The New Yorker boutique, Coming Soon in Lower East side hosted our opening, where we set up a healing oasis! Our Healing Prints that you can order on POAM’s website, were presented alongside with 2 teepees and peace flags, cushions and curtains which created an ambiance of zen and tranquility. An aestheticised oasis in the midst of our metropolic hectic lives. Thank you everyone who were there to celebrate it with us. The exhibition is open for a week more.

The scenography of our exhibition was designed by Haddock Studio, and the VR Oasis in the installation is made  by James Orlando.

We designed a holographic catwalk

Our studio designed the world’s first holographic catwalk for a virtual fashion line, all showcased on a real model, during Amsterdam Fashion week in July 2016. With this technology, we mimicked what Google’s Magic Leap will make us experience in the upcoming years. As for the future of fashion, we believe that people buy, throw, and mistreat their clothing because we do not feel connected with the inanimate objects around us. That is the reason why, with this catwalk experience, we made people emphasise with their clothing the way they do with their friends, where we visualised the spirit of the clothing.

Through animism, we gave life to the fashion line of Amber Slooten by adding facial characteristics like mouths and eyes and interactions between the dress and the model. You can find more information about this project on our interview in The Creators Project, and watch the making off of the hologram here.

Silencio Pool Party

Last summer, around this time, Silencio, the renown Parisian night club, designed by David Lynch, opened their doors to a temporary summer house in the south of France. We have been asked to organise a pool party with our Scandal Aqua Collection towels, which were a highly aestheticised, open minded yet critical scenario for the future of political sex scandals. The party started with a champagne breakfast and lasted till very late at night with all the guests in the pool.

Pinar&Viola for IKEA

IKEA commissioned Pınar&Viola to create a collection of prints under their name, to go on a wide variety of IKEA products, as a part of their Limited Print Collection. On 8th of June, during Democratic Design Days in IKEA Headquarters in Almhult, Sweden, the prototypes of the collection were presented to a group of 250 journalists.

IKEA asked Pınar&Viola to create prints that would attract, inspire, and surprise people all over the world. They wanted prints which would make them dream. To respond to IKEA’s wish, P&V created a collection which is an invitation to embrace the stranger, the unknown, the alien. A collection to celebrate similarities and differences. A collection to make people fantasise about social and planetary justice, through mythical animals and creatures. A collection to embrace the other. These themes are embodied in the four worlds: forest creatures, sweet alien, birds and the bees, and Gaudi giraffe.

The collection will be launched worldwide on June 2017. If you wish to know more about this collection don’t hesitate getting in touch with us: amandine@pinar-viola.com

Privacy Looks

The Desearch Repartement is a group of “desearchers” (as they put it). They use a satirical form of expression to break down into pieces the commodification and camouflaging of human injustices and oppression in our contemporary world. In their work they’re highlighting in various ways the structures/peoples that are holding today’s sociopolitical realities in place. They created full-body suits which are providing anti-recognition to the person who’s wearing it while also displaying the powerful structures/people they are criticising.

The Desearch Repartment initiates exhibitions and workshops around their work, they also produce digital images & videos based on a movement they created, the Essential Happiness Possibility. You can check out their work here, and their blog here.

Cellphone towers disguised like trees

Discover this photo serie by Robert Voit called New Trees, 2003, based on cellphone towers disguised as trees around the globe (USA, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, UK). Ivo Branislav and Aubrey Trevor Thomes are the creators of this puzzling invention and their first physical tower, made from non-toxic plastics, appeared in Cape Town in 1996. A company called Larson Camouflage built also similar structures for style-sensitive network companies in the American Southwest.

Mother Earth in Paris & MTV Ident

Pinar&Viola – Mother Earth in Paris from Pinar&Viola on Vimeo.

Pinar&Viola – MTV IDENT – Mother Earth, Who Are You from Pinar&Viola on Vimeo.

As part of ArtCOP21, the art events surrounding the ecology summit COP21, our installation Mother Earth in Paris was shown in Gleichapel Gallery in Marais. The exhibition features an installation that unveils revamped, contemporary, environmentalist messages of peace.

Through a video installation, Mother Earth reveals her grace and wisdom on a screen surrounded by prints having elements varying from Voynich Manuscript, root vegetables, peace banners, BC cave drawings of astral travels and liquid and sensual Mother Earth. With this eclectic choice of imagery, we show that the more we are driven by technology, the more we strive for knowledge and for the recognition of the sacredness of nature.

As we recently pledged in our Artist Statement, we’ll be devoting our work in creating highly aesthetic, charismatic activisms which will offer irresistible invitations for a more truthful and humane future. Mother in Paris is the first work we created after this altruistic pledge. Hereby the thorough interview we gave to Dazed about Mother Earth.

Later on, for MTV, as their ident, we created special extracts of our Mother Earth in Paris video, with custom wisdom quotes given by the Mother Goddess, where the Mother Earth catches your gaze and asks you “Who are you when no body is watching you”.
