Comfort Hair Sculptures by Artist Yuni Kim Lang

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Visual artist Yuni Kim Lang has a fascination with masses of hair and she creates sculptures and photographs from this very unusual medium. The jet black hair contrasts dramatically with with the pristine white tones of these stark gallery spaces. The hair is either physically exhibited in gallery spaces, represented by her large scale photography, or worn by models. Comfort Hair (the first featured work) is a large sculptural wig that was inspired by cultures in history that have preserved hair or obsessed about hair as a symbol of status or wealth.
