house hair, 2021
steel, resin, wax and hair
132 x 36 x 36 cm
shaped from a dollhouse, “house hair” is made of two identical parts in pigmented resin, that holds hair inside fixed with a beeswax plate. The organic part, detached from the body, becomes a reminder of death, or the passing time, as a “memento mori”. The lower part of the pedestal has a spiral staircase that descended to an empty space. In the exhibition this work was shown with a custom luminaire with a slightly pink filter.
