poster for threeASFOUR “MER KA BA”

This event has ended.

The New York-based fashion collective threeASFOUR presents its latest project, MER KA BA, an otherworldly installation that fuses avant-garde couture, architecture, and video projections. Inspired by sacred geometry and tile patterns found in synagogues, churches, and mosques around the world, the exhibition brings together ancient motifs and contemporary design aesthetics to reflect the group’s hybrid identity and utopian vision. Gabriel Asfour, Adi Gil, and Angela Donhauser, the designers of threeASFOUR, were born in Lebanon, Israel, and Tajikistan, respectively, and their diverse backgrounds have influenced their poetic and socially-conscious approach to fashion. threeASFOUR is collaborating with the architect Bradley Rothenberg to develop 3D-printed textiles based on symbolic latticework; with Studio Christian Wassmann to build an architectural structure in the form of a star tetrahedron; and with the 3D animation designer Alex Czetwertynski on video projections of the five Platonic solids.
