OLAYIDE ABIOLA

 

NATURE x NATURE: IN SPITE OF SIRENS

The art of fashion creation is the interplay of both masculine and feminine energies, a careful dialogue between feminine sensuality and masculine architecture and construction. In today’s societies, there has been a misrepresentation and exploitation of these two primordial forces to our collective detriment, as observed in recent news cycles. In spite of sirens is a performative installation piece that distills the architectural language of sacred spaces of worship from temples to churches into a fundamental form and component, as the basis for its environment, congregation and connection.
