> DESCRIPTION

Hair is a performance that explores intimacy among women through the physical act of cutting hair and the sense of trust and closeness it imbues. Using the delicate framework of a personal memory, and accompanied by the women with whom I have felt a strong feminine connection, I will attempt to conjure the childhood experience of attending a small hair salon with my mother, and my ritual of building nests from the clippings of her hair.Based in a familial history with Alzheimer's and ritualistic traditions, my work seeks to navigate the complicated space of memory within the clutter of contemporary life. The live performance of Hair will take place during the reception on September 7th, and the sculptural remnants will remain for the duration of the exhibition.
