On view at the University of Pennsylvania Institute of Contemporary Art through July 28, “White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart” presents a fascinating view into the concepts of adornment, self-presentation, and branding. Drawing inspiration from novelist J.G. Ballard—who defined fashion as “a recognition that nature has endowed us with one skin too few, and that a fully sentient being should wear its nervous system externally”—a group of artists utilized a variety of mediums, from costumes and jewelry to sculptures and paintings, to explore how our sartorial choices reflect our personalities.
