There’s nothing like a bit of sculpture to get the artistic juices flowing, but sculptured shoes and handbags at the Chelsea Galleries in New York – now that makes me really pay attention.
At the Mike Weiss Gallery (520 W24th St) there’s a surprising exhibition by Liao Yibai of what he likes to call ‘Real Fakes’. A larger than life gathering of over the top pieces in stainless steel that point to the subversive world of fake luxury goods.
As with scoping out a fake, it’s all about taking a closer look – there’s the Chanel clutch that has an Apple logo, the Pengdi tote and my personal favorite the ‘Real Sprada Bag’.
This exhibition is small but fun – it runs until October 30th so get your fake Gucci’s on and trot down to the Chelsea Galleries.
