Tata Christiane Couture develops two collections a year, producing limited series lines and unique pieces. Using hand made and industrial production, Christiane combines notions of poetics, fine art, vintage and street-wear to create contemporary costumes. Harboring neither a idealistic concept nor a vision for society, Tata Christiane operates on the border of elegance and bad taste, reminiscing on fond nostalgia and recalling unflattering memories alike.

Daria Marchik & Tata Christiane were selected to create a site specific piece for the Wear Is Art exhibit and to curate a very special Vernissage event.

"DAMTATIC" Curated by Daria Marchik & Tata Christiane
(7:30 – 9pm)
Daria Marchik & Tata Christiane’s "DAMTATAC" encapsulates indulgence and exploration. An amalgamation of Berlin's androgynous core and deviant sexuality, Huxley's future and tribal rituals, the dark cover of night and neon light, this live performance is an impromptu encounter of physical and metaphysical human nature.
