Building out nests for womanhood, 2013
After making the first ‘building a nest for womanhood piece' (description and photography can be found in link) I decided to work more within the ideas of how women feel about both their hair and gender. To explore this further I asked a small selection of other female identifying people (friends, family, teachers, other artists) to collect hair from their hair brushes and razors for 3 weeks, collecting them within a clear plastic bag. I then asked for a few small objects which they feel helps describe best how they feel about their gender identification, to give to me also to put in their personal nests which I created from the hair. The differentiating results were interesting and lovely, and while very personal also, I felt, very relatable as it is so easy to see why these women chose these objects, why femininity seems to important and why hair itself comes as such an important aspect in every day life to a woman.
continuation of my ‘building a nest to womanhood’ series! Very happy with these, so lovely in person to look at. So glad everyone was so interested in them at my exhibition!
