Performance :
LIAISONS SANS LENDEMAIN, L'INTIMITÉ ET LE CONFORT SS15
by MIMA by FABIO SILVA

Through a series of personal situations in his own life and the life of people surrounding Silva. He felt 
compelled to analyse the actions and emotions related to meeting someone and having casual sex with 
that person. 

"This lead to a nearly therapeutic process of knowing myself better and what I was aiming 
with these random encounters."

There is no right answer for this as it is something unique and personal. 
This process revealed itself through a series of drawings and illustrations that eventually became the 
first drafts and prints for his SS15 collection LIAISONS SANS LENDEMAIN, L’INTIMITÉ ET LE 
CONFORT. 



To preview it, Silva thought of not only showing some pieces of the collection, or explaining the reasons behind them, but suggesting that people went through a similar process themselves, hence 
understanding his work better and being able to relate to it or not.

By exposing possible attitudes after a one night stand, Silva expects the audience to question their own way of dealing with casual sex, which might even reflect on other parts of their lives. 
This performance aims to suggest the viewers to question their own stand towards sex, love and future 
family life. 


The size of the space will place viewers almost inside the action. 
The initial nudity/almost 
nudity of the models combined with the stillness and tension of most of the performance intends to 
cause a certain discomfort and anxiety in the audience, leading to an unconscious self-reflection. 
The collection and performance are connected not only by the concept, but by texture and colour as 
well.
