Occupying 125m2 space, exhibition holds extravagant houte-couture garments and Bartenev's signature porcelain collection. Starting from 13th of July until 10th of August exhibition is open for visitors @ Baznicas street 18A, Riga.
Andrey Bartenev is a Russian performance artist. He is not a fashion designer as many journalists mistakenly call him. His main goal is not creation, but exploration. Like a scientist, he wants to explore and show people what they tend to overlook: in particular the beauty and power of nature, and the relationship of people to space. His art is all about creation of positive emotions, the development of a funky, crazy world that is a fairy tale and a circus at the same time – a world that opposes the serious, commercial world of contemporary society – especially in his Russian homeland that has become a huge market for European and American art and consumer goods.
