If you’re looking to draw attention to an exhibit that is equal parts a commentary on body modification and an Instagram trap, there are few more qualified than Kim Kardashian who did just that today (August 27, 2018) when she previewed a necklace designed to resemble a transdermal body modifcation implant. As she points out in the clip,the necklace pulses in sync with her own heart beat.
The necklace is a preview of a coming “A.Human” body modification fashion line exhibit produced by Society of Spectacle, a brand founded by Command PR founder, Simon Huck.
According to press, visitors to the exhibit can expect a “collection unlike any fashion line ever seen before, as it’s comprised of body modifications instead of clothes. At the A. Human store, you’ll shop everything from bespoke hearts for you and your lover to biological heels that stem from your legs, and even get to try on some larger-than-life body modifications in our fitting rooms.”
Additional collaborators include Michael Counts, designer Nicola Formichetti and makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench.
The event will be open to the public from September 8-25, 2018 at 48 Mercer Street. The exhibit is open Monday-Wednesday from 4:00-8:00 PM and Friday-Sunday 11:00-9:00 PM. General admission is $40 and you can purchase tickets and make reservations here.
