Kitchen Sink - short film by Alison Maclean 1980s.
This black and white film tells the story of a woman who finds that a hair in her kitchen sink is attached to a creature which gradually becomes man-shaped. Themes of creation and destruction. The idea of the growth of a new form out of a single hair.
Fiene Scharp, hair works.
Scharp weaved gossamer fabric out of human hair and incorporated hair in gridded wall works. Her use of organic materials and the intricate, time-consuming creation process contrast with the strict and systematic use of grids. The play of light on the works highlights their delicate, fragile nature.
She physically puts herself in her art - expressing her identity. Embroidery is part of her Chinese heritage. Liyen works with her own hair, which supports the concept of her art as a personal narrative. “I started using hair because it is an expression of language: the way you wear your hair says something about you; it’s filled with your DNA.”
Cocoons. Binding, fragility, connecting, nature.
