Oder auch die krasseste Perücke der Welt. Auf jeden Fall ober-stylisch! Angelehnt an die Haarpracht der Frauen im historischen Koreahat die Künstlerin diese “Live Skulptur” erschaffen, die also auch nur in Verbindung mit ihrer Trägerin (oder ihren Trägern) funktioniert.

Comfort Hair is a live sculpture that is inspired by the Gache, which is a big wig that was worn by Korean women back in history who were of high social backgrounds. The bigger and heavier the wigs were, the more beautiful and aesthetic they were.

My vision was to see hair in the way we fantasize about it. The dead hair that we imagine to be full of life. It is the part of the body that has no nerves or muscles but has movements and rhythm that feel alive. When you cut it off there is no pain and it does not bleed. Yet, we perceive it as a sacred entity, where many cultures in history have preserved hair. I fantasize about my hair. It stands in for my cultural identity which is becoming an organism that continues to grow and prosper.
