It was recently held in Paris at the enchanting concept store Front de Mode, placed in the suggestive area of Marais, the presentation of “Underground seduction” the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 unisex collection by Naco Paris, which has enriched by “Kiss”, the performance made by the bright fashion designer as his alter ego Madame Paris. Fluid, sporty-chic lines, colors, bright shades of yellow along which black, white, green and blue, recycled cloths, rubber, catchy slogans as “have fun”, “kill the system”, “forever fake” are some of the patterns embodied in this smashing collection where it shines a punk attitude, made of irreverence, joy and activism. The same mood finds a new context in the art, a series of photographs, the self-portraits of Madame Paris that were exhibited in the concept store and the performance by Madame Paris( made by using the cruelty free lipstick by Nabla).

Intimacy and universality, the language of a gesture turning into matter, the kiss, which becomes a clear track of love and a way of being, the queerness, in its many shades, metaphor successfully made concrete on paper. Different are the tracks of lipstick on paper, some are more intense, reminding a passionate kiss, instead other ones are more delicate, different kisses for every occasion, though every occasion is good to kiss oneself and love oneself, love the ones you love, bring, give and spread love. That is the core of performance: to act, do, dream, love joyfully, without any limit. The universality of love remarks another issue, the queerness and gender fluidity – I support -, love nullifying the gender(, considering sexuality, sex and its different architectures is not about gender, it is just about individual’ s intimacy, something I respect and celebrate through silence and discretion). It’s a vibrant tale, being the successful evidence of a poetical and political way of making art and fashion, a genuine underground seduction for all the ones who are rebel hearts.

Si è recentemente tenuta a Parigi  nell’ incantevole concept store Front de Mode, ubicato nei suggestivi dintorni di Marais, la presentazione di “Underground seduction” la collezione unisex autunno/inverno 2016-2017 di Naco Paris, che è stata arricchita da “Kiss”, la performance realizzata dal brillante fashion designer nelle vesti del suo alter ego Madame Paris. Linee fluide, sporty-chic, colori, brillanti nuances di giallo unitamente a nero, bianco, verde e blu, tessuti di riciclo, vinile, accattivanti slogan quali “have fun”(“divertiti”), “kill the system”(“uccidi il sistema”), “forever fake”(“per sempre falso”) sono alcuni dei motivi impressi in questa formidabile collezione, in cui splende un’ attitudine punk, fatta di irriverenza, gioia e attivismo. Il medesimo mood trova un nuovo contesto nell’ arte, in una serie di fotografie, gli autoritratti di Madame Paris esposti nel concept store e la performance di Madame Paris( effettuata avvalendosi del rossetto cruelty free di Nabla).

Intimità e universalità, il linguaggio di un gesto che si trasforma in materia, il bacio, che diventa tangibile traccia di un sentimento, l’ amore e di un modo di essere, dell’ esser queer, nelle sue svariate sfumature, metafora felicemente concretizzata su carta Diverse sono le tracce di rossetto sulla carta, alcune sono più intense e ricordano un bacio appassionato altre invece sono più delicati, baci diversi per ogni occasione, anche se ogni occasione è buona per baciarsi, amarsi amare chi si ama, prendere, dare e spargere amore. Questo è il cuore della performance: agire, fare, sognare, amare con gioia e senza alcun limite. L’ universalità dell’ amore rimarca un’ altra problematica, l’ esser queer e la fluidità del gender – che sostengo -, l’ amore che vanifica il gender ( considerando la sessualità, il sesso e le sue svariate architetture non una questione di gender, bensì inerente l’ intimità del singolo individuo che in quanto tale rispetto e celebro attraverso il silenzio e la discrezione). Un vibrante racconto che è la felice dimostrazione di un modo politico e poetico di fare arte e moda, un’ autentica seduzione underground per tutti coloro che sono cuori ribelli.

It continues “Queer, art, film”, smashing series of events organized by Ira Sachs, featuring artists and movies as Jack Ferver – celebrated choreographer – who will presents on 22nd August 2011 in New York at IFC Film Theatre the screening of “The bitter tears of Petra Von Kant”, masterpiece by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, legendary filmmaker who explored in his work the world of relationships, their insanity and sad paradoxes. “Every time two people meet themselves and set up an affair, it regards seeing who dominates the other one. People didn’t learn to love. The prerequisite for being able to love without dominating the other is your body learns, since the time it leaves the belly of mother, it can die”. A deep truth, asserted by the filmmaker, shining in “The bitter tears of Petra Von Kant”, theatrical work turned into movie, telling the a story about love, solitude, submission and domination, depicting the femininity of three women: Petra Von Kant, fashion designer – interpreted by Margit Carstensen – living alone with Marlene – Irm Hermann -, her assistant who loves her secretly and acts as her servant and Kristin, the sadist lover interpreted by the muse of filmmaker Hanna Schygulla. The unforgettable movie has been the introduction to the work of Rainer Werner Fassbinder for Jack Ferver who considers that as a successful evidence of working about the more indigestible themes of the human psyche as obsession, power struggles, psychosexual battles, commenting on these darker natures with razor precision. “It is aesthetically sumptuous. There is a sense of delight as cruelty unfolds”. Thus the artist says, asserting “this film isn’t some droning, boring thesis about how sad the human condition is. It’s a wickedly funny, sexy and gorgeous film about how insane we can all be”. A not to be missed happening for all the ones who are devoted to film and the poetry by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

QUEER, ART, FILM: JACK FERVER PRESENTA “LE LACRIME AMARE DI PETRA VON KANT” DI RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER

Prosegue “Queer, art, film”, formidabile serie di eventi, organizzata da Ira Sachs di cui sono protagonisti artisti e film quali Jack Ferver – celebre coreografo – che presenterà il 22agosto 2011 a New York presso l’ IFC Film Theatre la proiezione di “Le lacrime amare di Petra Von Kant”, capolavoro di Rainer Werner Fassbinder, leggendario regista che ha esploratonella sua opera il mondo delle relazioni, la loro follia e i tristi paradossi. “Ogni volta che due persone si incontrano e stabiliscono una relazione si tratta di vedere chi domina l’altro. La gente non ha imparato ad amare. Il prerequisito per potere amare senza dominare l’altro è che il tuo corpo impari, dal momento in cui abbandona il ventre della madre, che può morire”. Una grande verità, affermata dal regista che splende in “Le lacrime amare di Petra Von Kant”, opera teatrale trasformata in film, racconta una storia d’amore, solitudine, sottomissione e dominazione, dipingendo la femminilità di tre donne: Petra Von Kant, designer – interpretata da Margit Carstensen – che vive da sola con Marlene – Irm Hermann -, sua assistente che la ama segretamente e si comporta come la sua serva e Kristin, l’amante sadica interpretata dalla musa del regista Hanna Schygulla. L’indimenticabile film è stata il primo contatto con l’opera di Rainer Werner Fassbinder per Jack Ferver che considera ciò una felice dimostrazione del lavoro sulle tematiche più indigeste della psiche umana quali l’ossessione, le lotte di potere, battaglie psicosessuali, osservando questi animi oscuri con la precisione di un rasoio. “É esteticamente sontuoso. Esiste una sensazione di piacere nel momento in cui si rivela la crudeltà”. Così sostiene l’artista, affermando che “questa pellicola non è una monotona, noiosa tesi su quanto  sia triste la condizione umana. È una pellicola perfidamente divertente, sexy e meravigliosa su quanto tutti noi possiamo essere folli” Un evento imperdibile per tutti coloro che sono devoti al cinema ed alla poetica di Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
