White Plaits, Blue Braids

Curators statement: "Braids have been made for thousands of years and for a variety of uses. By the same token, plastic bags can take hundreds of years to decompose. While several commentaries are narrated in the work –time, functionality, conservation and local practices from fishing to hairstyling – it is from its ethereal and ironic quality that the image draws its essential power: the artist magically turns an impurity into pure delicateness and light."
