Human hair, gold-plated brass and linen
A Hairy Tale
I believe that hair inherits power and beauty and is the ultimate garment growing from within us. It is part of our body, and therefore part of our identity; it helps us to differentiate ourselves as individuals, yet at the same time it is changeable and detachable.
It is beautiful and soft, and yet stubborn to work with. It likes to go its own way but so do I.
Through my work I intend to tell stories and evoke emotions by capturing a moment of beauty aiming to make it last longer than a glimpse of time.
