Péripétie, (Greek: Περιπέτεια) is a reversal of circumstances, or turning point, a kind of revolution. The term is primarily used with reference to works of literature and the most powerful part of a plot in a tragedy, along with discovery. A sudden reversal dependent on intellect and logic. In modern Greek περιπέτεια means adventure.

Madame Peripetie aka Sylwana Zybura is a photographer and linguist based in Germany and UK working internationally on diverse art projects and for various independent magazines. She explores the boundaries between fashion, sculpture and the human body, experimenting with various fabrics and patterns; whilst infusing high fashion elements with abstract and conceptual ideas, creating an eccentric escapade of colour and texture. In her work she is focusing on character design and it’s influence on modern fashion photography. Her inspirations include Surrealism, Dadaism as well as postmodernism (the new wave era of the 80s) and the avant-garde theater of Robert Wilson.
