Artist of the month

Maria Korkeila

Maria Korkeila is a Finnish designer and DJ, currently based in Paris. Korkeila’s field of expression is fluid: flowing in, out and in between fashion, music and photography, she proposes a vision that stretches beyond the binary. Following the culture and traditions of punk, deconstruction and DIY, rich textures and hand-worked textiles meet an abundance of color in a coalescence of deviance and sensuality.

Maria describes the work done for Post Bar: Trajectories of dancing bodies on a dimly lit dancefloor. I love people watching at clubs. I keep a mental archive of friend’s go-to dance moves. Seeing a familiar moves silhouetted in front of me on the dancefloor makes me feel at home.
