NEW YORK GALLERY is pleased to present ‘Quilted/Comfort’, the TELFAR Fall/ Winter 2013 Collection, featuring sculptural furniture by Lizzie Fitch with Nick Rodrigues and the interactive video game, TELFAR Style, in collaboration with Alan Schaffer and DIS Magazine on view from January 12 – February 23, 2013.

For this latest outing, TELFAR returns to the idea of urban protection with a range of unisex pieces made from durable materials like denim, cotton and flannel. These archetypal basics have been quilted in various ways as a primary form of insulation, but also to create new forms and silhouettes that straddle the divide between the functional and ornamental.

In accordance to new digital trends, the collection will be presented across various media platforms. The gallery space will feature prototype all-white garments, displayed on special commercial fixtures produced by Lizzie Fitch with Nick Rodrigues. These include a mannequin, display racks, as well as a gaming station for the interactive video game, ‘TELFAR Style,’ designed by Alan Schaffer.

The virtual game mirrors the gallery set up and players are invited to alter the collection according to their own styling needs, changing the color and coordination of individual pieces.  Hosted simultaneously on the DIS Magazine website, the game will play throughout the duration of the exhibition. At the closing, winning player looks will be selected and the white prototype garments dyed and styled accordingly to activate them from their latent state. These transformed pieces will be presented in the TELFAR runway presentation that will take place during New York Fashion Week in February.

Telfar Clemens (b. 1985) is a New York native, raised in Liberia, West Africa. He launched TELFAR in 2006, as a progressive clothing collection that deconstructs the conventions of commercial fashion, including concepts of dissemination and display. He has expanded his practice to include numerous artistic collaborations, including with Ryan Trecartin & Lizzie Fitch, whose videos he has also appeared in. Telfar currently lives and works in Queens, New York.
