“Home Sweet Home” is the latest collection by Georgian gallerist and curator Ria Keburia. The designer who presented her collection during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi in the form of a performance.
The piece sees groups of performers come together to build and form a working home from bodies. Sinks, Chairs, and Mirrors are held up and supported by models to externalize and form a living organism. Keburia wanted her ‘Home’ to blur and mask the ideas of Body objectification and gender roles.
“Through this performance, I tried to create an illusionary house, a living organism of model objects needed for everyday life. This story was staged in the theatre, which gave it a really big exposure. It was like a traditional theatrical piece, yet still maintaining the contemporary touch. The ‘home my Sweet Home’ combined four collaborators: Marusia Nizauvtsova went for garments, Anya Mokhova took care of the exterior, Muzaradi came in with hats, and Leather-Like Wood’s accessories perfectly decorated the interior. My performance showcased the appearance of a house I would live in, highlighting the human-object relationship. ”
