Ria Keburia Spring/Summer 2018
Ria Keburia presented her SS18 collection at MBFWRussia and MBFWTbilisi in the staged theatre format. The performance “Home Sweet Home” pivots around the theme of the internal-externalists sees a group of artists build a fully-fledged house – a living organism built up from models in which the artist/pilgrim can live. The collection is devoted to transforming models into the internal and external objects of a surrealist house. The entire house is characterized by a lack of gender, and animate and inanimate objects are equated in terms of importance. As there are no predominant objects in the house, all items are equally important for a comfortable life.
Several designers have been invited into the collaboration, each of which will work in specific areas of the future house. The modernist artist Anya Mokhova is engaged in the external frame of the building, Elena Tarabakina creates interior accessories, Marousia Nizovtsova will transformthe characters with clothing, and the Muzaradi brand will create the headdresses. Model-armchairs, cabinets, sofas and even curtains – a place for everything and everything in its place.
