Free Tape

 

Edwin Mohney created his ‘FREE TAPE’ collection by casting himself and other loved ones in tape with the intention of ridding himself of his fears. Each piece was assigned a specific fear informing the piece’s aesthetic. The process of taping is an integral aspect of the work’s meaning as it represents an instantaneous construction of a fashion ‘look’. With his choice of bright pop colours Edwin Mohney also comments on contemporary culture; referencing the internet era and other bad taste cultural icons. “BRUCE, the piece exhibited at Modebelofte, is a cast of my father being worn as a jacket in order to challenge the existence of fashion as an identity rather than a garment.”
