Gaga-esque

Madame Peripetie explores the boundaries between fashion, sculpture and the human body, experimenting with various fabrics and patterns; whilst infusing high-fashion elements with abstract and conceptual ideas, creating an eccentric escapade of color and texture.

Behind this gaga-esque and burlesque pseudonym one finds the artist Sylwana Zybura who is based in Germany and UK working internationally on diverse art projects and for various independent magazines.

Sylwana is a very innovative fashion photographer and surrealist artist who have a master degree in Linguistics and has a strong interest on film direction.

To me, she is a mastermind in visionary photography and radical character design. It is an excerpt of her work, a glimpse of her aesthetics.

In her work she is focusing mainly on the interaction between body, language and new media. And obviously, her inspirations include surrealism, dadaism as well as the new wave era of the 80s, British post punk scene and the avantgarde theater of Robert Wilson.

I am sure that I am not the only one who is somehow also reminded on the surreal masterpiece movies of “The Cell” and “The Fall” or even Matthew Barney’s “Cremaster Cycle”. But I love Sylwana Zybura’s reinterpretation and further developement of them.
