Clarina Benzzola II

Toothvest 2001

Wickedly challenging and utterly inspiring work by Clarina Benzzola
These two garments are made from fabric, polyester-filling, styrofoam and resin, they bear their teeth at the onlooker, a warning to  stay away, keep your distance. 
Clothing is one way to wear a mask. We dress to hide our vulnerable bodies and souls . . . Through my wearable sculptures I question and redefine the role of the garment. Wrapping the body to reveal instead of conceal. The wearer’s emotional landscape gets exposed and invites to an honest and open dialogue between the wearer and the viewer.” Clarina Benzzola
