WHEN YOU‘VE STOPPED COMBING ME,
I’LL STOP HATING YOU
Exhibition curator: Ivana Vojt, art historian
Exhibition opening: June 28th 2016 at 7 p.m.
In the series of photographs When You’ve Stopped Combing Me, I’ll Stop Hating You, the author shows women and girls in the moment of perseverance and endurance during the painful and unpleasant processes of making a hairstyle, which would be a response to the ideals of beauty construed in their environment. The clients never abandon their intention to walk out of the salon looking prettier than when they came in, and they patiently endure the hours of sitting, pulling, even sewing and torching the locks of their hair. Young women, future brides, mothers with babies and older women are subject to this treatment, proving that beauty saves no one.
