VESTIPHOBIA by Uta Bekaia Fashion Show

Saturday night the artist and fashion designer Uta Bekaia invited us once again into his world where he presented his latest collection of art-wear works. Filled with smoke the dark room was solemn and heavy. The audience was transcended in a fantasy of an apocalyptic celebration that came to life through movement, video, music and text. He featured parts of ancestral rituals with elements of Butoh (Japanese Theater) , 19th century circus, and contemporary dance.

The stage was conceived as a fashion arena where costumes were the embodiment of animal instincts, dreams and desires. Digging in the unconscious’ most primal nature – violence and sexuality – VESTIPHOBIA offered a contemplation of vileness’ hidden beauty.
