It is not everyday that a person sees barrettes that take on the form of severed ears and headphones shaped like snails; but in the world of Klara Pernicova, these sightings are much more frequent. This is due in large part to the fact that she has a direct hand in such creations. An artist based in Prague, Czech Republic, Klara Pernicova deals with the unexpected in order to keep people on their toes, something that is sorely lacking in the comfort of everyday routines.
Although many of Klara Pernicova's wearable creations are disturbing, she explains that her artistic goal is to "unsettle people in their judgements at least for a little while. Or even to provoke them to an alternative explanation of reality."
