The rapid changes we are facing today regarding our ecosystem as well as fast technological development and a dystopian feel to some popcultural phenomena created a preoccupation with our way of living. Sudden shifts and disruptions in society can create a hollow feeling and promote a sense of decadence.
During the industrial revolution the word‘s negative aspects being synonymous with decline and degeneration became a political buzzword for conservatives opposing change. It got picked up as a concept in the Belgian movement of Symbolism that saw society drifting towards materialism and loosing its beliefs.
The photographs try to recreate a side of decadence that is less connected to decay but rather to a self assumed excess, a dionysian kind of freedom.
des FILLES désir is a personal expression of Adrian Stoica, aiming for an innovative spirit in making clothes. A particular interest lies in creating unusual shapes and volumes and adapting them to the body for everyday purposes.
Patricia Morosan is a photographer and artist based in Berlin and Athens and part of the international photo collectiv Temps Zero and also a member of the artist organization Artistania.
