Capes & Knock-Offs by Paulina Berczynski with Phil Manley, "Life Coach"

Paulina Berczynski’s work focuses on textile arrangements that mix commercially available materials with samples, hand-woven elements, digital printing, and fabric salvaged from garment production. 

Opening April 8th at Vacation, Capes and Knock-Offs will feature conceptual cloaks and counterfeit teeshirts that explore a range of ideas around fashion, credibility, consumerism, and transcendence. Mining the overlaps between style, fashion and art, the work questions how the garments we wear and covet relate to authenticity and notions of personal identity.
