Hair, we do have it all. On our head, on our body. Long, short, black, white. Some have it less, some prefer to have it not.
‘Haar’ is the Dutch word for ‘her’ as well as ‘hair’.
Talking about her (scalp)hair…
Hair is a recognisable topic for every (human) being and especially for woman. We use it to distinguis ourselves. We recognise and identify people partly by their hair. Hair makes us feel feminine. Hair gives us our face, determines our personality, our image. Hair covers the scalp, is a fashionable tool, protects the feminine vulnerability and gives her confidence, if in the right place of course. But it also covers our soul, as usually we feel vulnerable by loosing hair.
The question might be asked: ‘Is hair only covering the scalp or also our real face?’
Every day we lose an average of 100 hairs. In case we take good care of ourselves and our hair, most of us are lucky with the cyclical vigor of hair, as for most of us, hair keeps growing again to death.
This work is all about that hair. It shows the complexity, the cyclical vigor and the beauty and hiding aspect. Wondering about the question: ‘Are we depending on hair to show and be proud of our real selves?’
