Hrafnhildur Arnardottir - Hair sculptures

Window display for Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York 2008
Since the dawn of human culture, hair has been a medium for self-expression and identity. Hair is the original accessory, possessed by nearly every person. it has been braided, twisted, wrapped,piled, coiled, looped, teased, curled, straightened, twirled, sculpted, shaved, snipped, bound and woven manipulated in every way imaginable. Using human, horse and artificial hair New York based Islandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardottir pushes the material well beyond its decorative and theatrical applications to explore it's strange and magical possibilities.
Like many Isladic artists, Arnardottir incorporates traditional craft techniques in her work.
The Nordic Award in Textiles goes this year to Hrafnhildur's magic creations. Congratulate!
