Ribeyron x Lukas von der Gracht + Jaana Kristiina, Oct 7

, 6 October 2016

Lukas von der Gracht and Jaana Kristiina are presenting performative installation ‘Do You Think We Can Get Through This?’ at 53 Rue Notre-Dame de Nazareth in Paris on October 7.

The event comes as part of Canadian fashion brand Ribeyron‘s t-shirt launch, The Boyfriend Collection, and features the two artists and Instagram friends insight into “the aftermath of catastrophe”. In this case, disaster is “the hyper emotional state of being in the conflict of a romantic relationship”, where Paris-based von der Gracht and London-based Kristiina focus on three couples and three parts.

The resulting installation posits a redefinition of success in a relationship going beyond the duties and practicalities of “(heterosexual)” marriage into “self-fulfilment and sexuality”, while exploring the outcomes in kind.

See the FB event page for details.**
