May Queen, the installation
For their Opening, the new space PLATTE
, invited the performance artist Ma Li to do an installation. “May Queen”
transforms production waste from Berlin-based labels Máthé, Tata Christiane, and Starstyling into a visual dream world inspired by tradition, mythology, ritual, folklore, pop culture, and traditional Chinese crafts.
With an exuberant approach, she creates floral elements and creatures that celebrate the “May Queen” of our time by upcycling donated recyclables. Also known as the Goddess of Spring, or Queen of Flowers, May Queen is a symbol of the stillness of nature around which everything revolves.
She represents purity, strength and the potential for growth and is the life force of the earth.
When I came to visit the Ma Li’s installation, she invited me to do a shooting in her installation. So we did it with Robert Bartholot.
May Queen, Collector Collection
It is an Unique pieces Collection made of up-cycling only the left overs of our collection fabrics boxes, even the smaller ones that we collect and keep in the studio. Some of them were even from our really first collection, Comet Club.
Following the zero waste ethic of sustainable fashion. This collection is a memory by it self of the story of Tata Christiane. Also we developed the patchwork Tote Bags that are a great way to up-cycle our smallest left overs into a really nice accessory.
This collection was totally in harmonie with the Ma Li’s Installation. That why we called it the same to refer to her installation.
We are also using the samples of Cecile Feilchenfeldt
art Knitwear. We ll write a full article about our collaboration with Cécile.
