Ardorously Activist, Passionately Insurgent
Location: FEN, Hall Central
Ardorously Activist, Passionately Insurgent is the name of biovideoart work which explores the theme of hair loss, the side effect of a violent chemotherapy I underwent to treat a devastating cancer I developed in 2011. As such, as my hair fell out, I re-lived the forms of violence inflicted upon my shining black hair in subscribing to 20th century hairstyling.
