Hair Power at Wereldmuseum Rotterdam

‘Where Do We Go From Here’ is part of HA!R POWER, a new exhibition at Wereldmuseum Rotterdam.

This work explores the ancestral idea of some objects being embedded with a spiritual power. Here, power is represented by a bright blue hair extension flowing out of a portal guarded by four wolves and an anthropomorphic bear holding her cub. This mysterious object speaks to us about circular time, the renovation of life, the fluidity and permeability between different worlds, and the larger-than-human dimension that defines our very existence.
