Growth and Loss – Hair in contemporary art

Next week an interesting exhibition Growth and Loss will be open in Oulu Museum of Art. It focuses only on hair but like it is written in the exhibition press release “hair seems to be tangled in everything: mythology, religion, politics, the economy, ethnicity, social class, identity, gender, sexuality, age, sickness and health, art, and the popular culture. For visual artists, hair — own, real or fake — is not only tangible and human raw material, but also a highly communicative bearer of stories, meanings, notions and memories”.

The necklace from the series Purity by Tiina Rajakallio is part of the exhibition Growth and Loss in Oulu Museum of Art. The exhibition focuses on hair in contemporary art. The exhibition is open from 11th of May until 15th of September 2019.
