Hair Works

Made between 1997 and 2004 this series of works explores female identity through the use of hair. Some of the works make specific reference to literary sources, for example The Betrothed in based on a scene at the beginning of Midnights Children. The works capitalise on the strong cultural associations that there are about both real, cut hair and fake wig hair. Watch excerpts from the Hair Burqa performance.
