Palivo/ doslovne udržateľná móda 2018-2019
Drevo, kov, zvyškový textil...



Stále rastúca rodina objektov
ktoré sú úvahou o veľmi prítomnom vzťahu  módy a enviromentu / 
dopade módneho priemyslu na životné prostredie. 
Kladie otázku ako prítomna je príroda/prirodzenosť v módnom priemysle.
Kolekcia vznikla ako antióda oslavných hymien, 
ktoré spievame so zaklonenou hlavou a očami zatvorenými 
smerom k módnym nebesám.
Selekcia drevených bakúľ sa diala veľmi intuitívne a prirodzene,
 v lesoch Francúzskeho Ardèche,
v Amsterdamských parkoch a mestských perifériách a na Fatranských lúkach, 
kam som chodievala
pacificky loviť svoje múzy a nechávala sa očarovať elementárnou archetypálnosťou
 a silou materiálu neopracovaného dreva, 
ktorá pochádza z jeho pravdivosti, jedinečnosti a neopakovateľnosti. 
 Z nepotreby na argumenty pre svoju existenciu.
Po zasadení do módneho kontextu jasným kontrastom poukazuje
 na svoju vlastnú surovú prirodzenosť vo svete neprirodzenosti, 
ktorý kráča rýchlosťou svetla do akejsi tmy, ktorá síce láka vojsť, 
no z ktorej týmto metaforicky robím krok naspäť,
a potom ešte dva...
S nádejou uviesť romantiku módneho priemyslu na pravú mieru.

A jewel
surgical steel, cut & filed nails( finger nails)

A podcast on economic activities connected with the processing of raw materials and
manufacturing of goods was playing way too loud when it broke.


Finger nails grow approx. 3mm per month and they increase the speed of growing when
expoesd to the sun.
Like trees.


                                                                                      




“You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one”

acrylic paint on wood
 
A painting I made quite some time ago in my childs room and my parents hid in the basement while I was gone.
They have certainly never seen or moved it ( when I asked them about my painting)
and therefore,
it can be considered the first and only painting that has undergone a metaphysical teleportation
i was happy to find it in the basement again in 2018

Móde
Gerrit Rietveld Academie 
2018

The search for freedom being one of the main themes for this generation 
of emerging artists and designers, 
Nikola took it to the extreme for her graduation project. 
It is a collection of garments behind which there is no pre conceptualized idea other than
 the materials being used, damaged or acquired from free sources.
 It is the direct contact with the fabric, without patternmaking 
and without the use of a ruler.
 It is the sensual experience of colors and materials and shapes
 in space and time,
 a celebration of the creation and the existence of it. 
It is a physical metaphor for what I perceive, believe in and am… 
It is what it wants to be."

Words, as she pointed out in her thesis,
 by definition fail to capture the reality freed from human conceptualizing.  
Freedom, whatever the word represents, is always worth striving for

COAT I
  COAT II  
  2015-16

coat by definition: A coat is a garment worn by 
both men and women, for warmth or fashion.
 Coats typically have long sleeves and are open down the front, 
closing by means of buttons, zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners,
 toggles, a belt, or a combination of some of these.



blanket by definition: A blanket is a type of bedding
It is, generally speaking, a large piece of woven cloth,
 intended to keep the user warm, especially
 while sleeping or lying down.
 A blanket traps the radiant heat from the user's body, 
and instead of dissipating into the air, it warms the user. 
It also protects against heat being lost by convection.

SINS'N'PAINS




Sins’N’Pains is an anti-fashion statement, 
refusing to change by seasons,
 determinant to find, 
create and keep images that can stay permanently,
 above trends and for all times.

Diaper
2014
A product  result of an experimental workshop with Sonja Baumel, 
a bio scientist/artist with the purpose to grow curiosity about living materials.
After a proces of growing my own bactera Kombucha,
 a lightly effervescent fermented drink produced by cultivating a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast in a green tea medium, 
I applied a layer of  functionaity. 
 The Diaper is a prototype of an experimental idea of how the microbial material could be used. 
Kombucha culture, when dried, becomes a leather-like textile known as a microbial cellulose 
 that can be molded onto forms to create seamless clothing.
 It also has an ability to re-absorb liquids. 
I decided to use this attribute for creating a diaper pad which can serve to absorb bodily liquids. 
And because the whole science was a bit too serious for me, 
I decided to document it in a joke ´teleshopping like´ easthetics and make a video work, in addition

Unable Lable

2016-2017

 

Tento socio-politický projekt bol súčasťou rok trvajúcej aktívnej angažovanosti v utečeneckom campe v budovej bývalej väznice v centre Amsterdamu, v ktorom som organizovala kurzy šitia pre 250 ubytovaných  mužov, ktorí sa stali kolaboračnými partnermi ako aj modelmi módnej kolekcie.  Bola to kolekcia kriticky komentujúca materiálne orientovanú spoločnosť , bola to SAD STORY OF FASHION, ktorá nemá kapacitu byťjazykom, ktorý by bol schopný obsiahnuť témy ako je kríza utečencov. Úspech a medializácia tohotoprojektu však vyvrátila jeho tvrdenie.Projekt bol podporený  Droog Amstredam,  kde bola organizovaná The Price of Fashion : Fashion Charity Aukcia.


This project was supported by Droog Amstredam and was followed by 

The Price of Fashion : Fashion Charity Auction (see below)

and was exhibited at Borders & Migration exhibition in Radion, Amsterdam, 2016 (see above)

"Nikola explored in depth a topic that was near to her heart and it has helped
her develop her vision, not just for design/art, but even for her life.
She took great pride in the writing, going into details tirelessly to explain her
point.
The vision she shares is a vital one for the modern world, so I hope she will
continue making work based on this ‘zen’ essence."
