Exploring Ukrainian traditional cultures, Tripolar hosts modern designers and artists that apply folkloric traits to their practice. The set design is inspired by Sergei Paradzhanov’s iconic Kyiv Frescoes, executed by AVOIR Agency and the pop-up’s attic is dedicated to fashion, hosting dresses made out of upcycled tablecloths by POUSTOVIT, woven caftans by BENZA and Anna October’s trademark sundresses. A curation of Ukrainian artefacts further emerges the visitor into the Ukrainian universe; embroidered bedsheets by VITA KIN, artisanal ceramics by NADIIA WORLD and glazed pottery by GUNIA PROJECT, scented wax candles by MEDOVI SVICHKI and graphic rugs by Oksana Levchenya.
Showcase activations are one practical way to support the artists that need it the most at the moment, so if you happen to be in the city of light, head to 169 Boulevard Saint-Germain to celebrate Ukrainian culture and buy some paintings, sculptures, rugs, or fashion!
