Hair I Am? by Rachel Lee

Hair I Am is the performance piece that stemmed from the artists's proposal to "Have my mother my hair as she did when I was a child, then cut off my braids and shave my head. My braids will be gifted to my mother." Яachel Lee wanted to project a tone of genuine and raw care through an act of coming of age.

 

Proposal: Have my mother braid my hair as she did when I was a child, then cut off my braids and shave my head. My braids will be gifted to my mother.
