Accessories in the shape of paradoxical prosthetics evoke discomfort challenging our false certainty.
The Nekromantik collection by costume maker and avant-garde fashion designer Katarzyna Konieczka, a set of one-off pieces designed to evoke extreme feelings, reveals our society’s intimate fears. Asymmetrical, deconstructed garments are overlaid by prosthetic devices of a seemingly medical nature that distort the facial characteristics forcing the viewer to identify with the presumable discomfort of the model wearing them and thus disrupts the careless of his/her fallacy of security.
