Blockage     extractors, The Extractor Space, London, 2015

extractors was a group show, curated by the artist Wayne Lucas, which brought together ten artists who had previously held, over the course of a year, residencies and solo shows in The Extractor Space. [See PDF below for more information] 

 

I had completed my residency in June 2014, where I made The pleasure of small partings. For extractors I decided to bring the hair back to perform alone, encasing it in ice at both ends of the drain. Slowly throughout the show the two ice blocks would melt, finally leaving their watery remains in the gutter and revealing the hair in its naked glory.
