Dark Eros

“Last January I went to see an art performance of an Ukrainian girl, here in Poland. She had to leave Her country due to political reasons. I was simply blown away by Her storytelling and fashion skills, with an absolute, fresh approach of it all.

Soon I decided to style and art direct Her first campaign. It’s something in between fairytale meeting baroque orgy. Our models are refugees, LGBT groups, artists and performers.The editorial and the video are our fetish dream. Dream of living in a country where we can speak and fantasize sex freely. Where we are all equal for no matter what sex and color. 

Both Ukraine and Poland are going through rough times. We’re being censored, ruled by extremists who are willing to sacrifice its people over the totalitarian influence. It’s so important for us to be seen. And heard. As Anja Rubik promotes sexual education, here, from over 2 years now, we fight for the right to create the important.” 


Following the prologue of Charlotte Tomaszewska, the art & creative director of the project; our editor Yves Tsou of CAP 74024 taps into the backstory and conducts an interview with the girl behind Atelier Planeta, for a deeper understanding on her inspiration, creation and Her thoughts about the current prevalent anti-LGBT political situation in Poland.

What’s your initiation on creating Atelier Planeta?

I could not find the lingerie that I wanted to wear. It neither described me in a way I am nor reflected my sexuality and femininity. So, I decided to сreate a space which will represent my art works, performance practices and passion of fashion. Our planet consist of numerous elements. Same with Planeta, I could be any at different times. I can create an intimate costume, an art piece, arrange a special dinner, set the right mood and comfortable atmosphere for my guests. Planeta’s mission is to help open your mind and soul by using different tools and switching between variety of visual forms.

What’s the inspiration to your fashion and performance art creation?

Bulgakov had a great influence on me. In his book <The Master and Margarita>, he describes a scene at a Satan’s ball. “The men in tailcoat and the women naked. Margarita puts on golden-clasped slippers and diamond crown. Her body douses in blood and rose oil; The incoming guests are greeting Margarita by kissing her knee.” The image of Margarita remained in my head for a long time, I wanted to create this heavy, metal costume she has to wear. I love details and small things. Sometimes just one sentence make me feel creating a piece “them to kiss your knee”. I am also inspired by magic, ceremonies and rituals. Doing performance is like creating a pleasure palace. Choosing the right flower essence, preparing love potions, creating healing power of sex and love.

Do you have any sexual fantasies or fetishes; do they project on your work?

Oh God, yes! I have! There is a saying in Ukraine “Tell me who your friend is and i will tell you who you are”. Instead of words and explanations I show everything through my art. So look carefully and tell me what I like. ❤

 

What’s the most fascinating part about human bodies, eroticism, fetishes and physical practices?

More recently, I realized that the most fascinating part of the concepts above is having a lover – a partner on the path – is truly one of the life’s great blessing. Celebrate love and celebrate life together.

Do your previous sexual experiences, regardless of who you were with, also affect or inspire your work?

Any experience affects a person’s development and their choices. Consciously or unconsciously. I am a very sensitive person, take everything to heart. So it’s very easy to influence me or marking my soul forever. During artistic practices I’m working with memories a lot. The idea of observing, analyzing and transforming one memory into art piece makes me feel powerful. It’s a kind of therapy, natural treatment for my body and soul, emotional balance based on self care program.

 

What is sexual freedom to you?

Sex is an extraordinary form of communication. Sexual freedom is losing yourself and finding yourself all at once. This is a practice of making love as if it were a sacred adventure. Not just between two people. Treat your body as a temple. Discover new paths of sexual miracles.

What’s your opinion towards Polish and Ukrainian youth nowadays in terms of their openness in sex and sexuality?

By observing people in Poland and Ukraine I draw my own conclusions that youth are quite open to talk about sexuality and eroticism. But there is a lot of uncertainty, doubt, and fear in their eyes. I see this fear everywhere, in a subway, in a restaurant, on the street. People are afraid to look into each other’s eyes, afraid to smile, afraid to say complements, afraid to look happy and carefree. They are afraid of what the neighbors will think if they find out something “weird” about them. It makes me tired and disappointed but in the same time brings something

Just as in many countries, the equality of sexuality is painstaking; clashes between people from different opinions are inevitable. We’ve seen many protests on the streets of Poland in the past few weeks; regardless the assemblies are anti or pro sexuality equality. It can be regarded as a progression of the society. What’s your idea about it?

Poland is deeply divided now. While the opposition lost this presidential election, 49 percent of the population voted against the newly elected president Andzrej Duda. At the same time, the LGBT movement is far more engaged and active than it was two decades ago. Majority in Poland support legal recognition of same-sex couples. This gives me a hope that society is changing and transforming which is a good sign. However, more time is needed in order to connect the majority.

Corresponding to the previous question, what’s your prospect to the Polish (and Ukrainian) society in terms of this issue in the near future?

I believe that Poland and Ukraine need a sexual revolution. The moral and cultural world has been transformed by the sexual revolution. That requires the leadership of revolutionaries, ready to transform those ideas into a platform for moral transformation. A single individual cannot accomplish a moral revolution, but such revolutions cannot happen without individuals who are willing to make their arguments in public, push them with energy over decades, and never sound retreat. I think that such an explosion should happen soon.

Photography project by Riccardo Maria Chiacchio

So goes the chant sung by the washerwomen of Napoli, in one of the earliest examples of Neapolitan song, dating back to the late twelfth century.

 

This is a project about connections: Mothers connecting to their sons, bodies connecting to fabric, faces connecting to their ancient features.

 

All clothes have been washed in the Mediterranean sea and been exposes to the ashes of Mount Vesuvius, all subjects were born and raised in Napoli.
