Projet Chevelu is a reflection on the intimate, visceral and even political relationship that we have with our hair. A convergence of personal, cultural, social and sexual identities, hair symbolizes the tension between existence and appearance, between being and being perceived.
The exuberant hairstyles of black women are rooted in the personal and collective unconscious, and like an untamed monster, the amorphous mane can sometimes conceal a dark world of pain, shame and envy. Simultaneously intimist and universal,
Projet Chevelu becomes a spiritual quest.
