"Detached. Aspects of Hair"
Prof. Ute Eitzenhöfer, Prof. Eva-Maria Kollischan
Fachrichtung Edelstein und Schmuck
My work exists in the field of objects, installation and jewellery. I ask questions about human nature, about values, about the process of life. In my work I use human hair to translate these questions into a material existence.
Hair: valuable, shameful, repulsive?
I challenge declarations by using hair that I collected from dozens of individuals, mostly women. I convert the hair, combine it with ”precious” materials, put it into a new context, revalue it. In my work the hair gets an independent identity. The material becomes the protagonist of my work.
