Displaced

2018 exhibition in Uzupis Art Incubator, Vilnius, Lithuania

Installation of 1001 origami paper envelopes. On each envelope, poems about the beauty of hair are written and inside there is some human hair. 

This project looks into the closeness of beauty and disgust; Hair on the scalp is praised as an inspirational human feature, however, as soon as it is detached from its place, the hair no longer is linked with its innate attractive quality.  This puzzle could be compared with migration and the concept of xenophobia that most migrants experience.
