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.

P&V Healing Prints

The way fashion designers launch collections where they showcase the near-future of clothing, our studio yearly launches collection where we showcase the near-future of images. Followed by our artist statement about our devotion to social and planetary justice, we digitally crafted a collection where we made prints and garments that revitalise and celebrate the sacredness of nature. Pinar&Viola Healing Prints is a collection of rebellious visuals fabricated into unique fashion statements.

We would like to thank Stimuleringsfonds for their generous support in making this collection happen. The pictures of The Mother Earth Dress is taken by Thomas Vassarot and the rest of the healing prints is photographed by Wendelin Spiess

Launch Healing Prints: P&V Image Collection 2017

Auction Healing Prints — Paris, 29th of June 2016

The way fashion designers launch collections where they showcase the near-future of clothing, our studio yearly launches collection where we showcase the near-future of images. The concept decides for the medium where these images will be shown.
Followed by our artist statement about our devotion to social and planetary justice, we digitally crafted a collection where we made prints and garments that revitalize and celebrate the sacredness of nature. Healing Prints is a collection of rebellious visuals fabricated into unique fashion statements.
Each garment is a chance to spread the contemporary altruistic message of the healing prints, by mixing the aesthetics of high fashion and digital couture.
The collection manifests in different sub-topics, such as Mother Earth, Sexual Healing, Healing from Capitalism, Power To The Earth, Silence and The Emancipation Of Flowers. We made five one off couture pieces, 3 dresses and 2 t-shirts of edition one, which we sold during a special auction performance with Luc Saucier on the evening of June 29 in our studio in Paris. It was a festive event with an enchanting Healing Print relaxation room, a music performance of David Millhouse and abundant raw cacao sniffing.

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.

P&V Sweatshop

To install our last show, Blue Jeans On Thin Ice, we were in Los Angeles for two weeks. Essential elements of this new installation were 62 denim teddy bears. One by one, we crafted the bears by hand in our own, LA based, denim sweatshop. This terrific amount of craftsmanship was done under the supervision of the amazing Christi Baquet.

This post gives a glimpse of all hours spend in the making of the Blue Jeans On Thic Ice teddy bears. We could only achieve the beautiful result thanks to the help of these unforgettable people: David Charles, Melinda Gorham, Christi Baquet, Malvin Wix, Sean Costello (= the builder of the shooting gallery), Lady Karson, Noah Paul, BULLETT, Michelle Watson, Nico, Emi Tamaru, Joanna Rosso, Kali Nikitas, Gabe, Jeroen, Mike Gamms, Remy Brixton and the entire KKLA Family thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! <3

Paris Nuit Blanche

We exhibited Scandal Aqua, our 2013 collection at the town hall of the 2nd arondissement of Paris, as part of Nuit Blanche. This collection is a visual scenario inspired by the latest political sex scandals, it expresses the mediatization and tabloidization of politics.
The town hall of Paris (la Mairie), with its political context and the church wall in its courtyard where the teenager girls were projected, was absolutely the best exhibition place for Scandal Aqua. You can find more information concerning the collection here.
