Shaggy

hair, hair curlers -160 x 60 x 50 cm photo by Mie Cornoedus

I made this enormous wig as a comment on Indonesian hair culture. The ‘shaggy' haircut is very trendy and still dominating most girls' hair models in rural Java. This creates a uniform look. Hair is an important part of our identity (covered or uncovered) and much time is spent in beauty salons. Collection: Singapore Art Museum
