Amazing artist

Germaine Koh projects: Fête:

I'm astounded by this woman. "Swags of mostly-black hair sewn into fringes hang on a wall, like tinsel celebrating a rite of passage. Each section is discreetly embroidered with a date, referring to the year in which the artist had the haircut resulting in the hair for that section. Ordered chronologically, each section has a different character: more and less healthy, increasingly showing grey. The hair continues to be somewhat organic, hanging differently with atmospheric changes. "
