LAS NIÑAS MALAS
The work in this series was the beginning of exploratory drawings of hair as costume, which later evolved to hair as an animate and suffocating entity (see La Bataille series). Accompanying the drawings was crown made of hair I brought back from Mexico city. This same crown was later dismantled and shown as a giant mass accompanying the subsequent drawings. This series was shown at the FOFA Gallery in Montréal.
These large-scale drawings (4.5' x 9') were part of an exhibit at Galerie [sas] in Montréal. Drawn with pen and ink, these were the second series of drawings exploring hair as costume and in this case, a suffocating entity. Accompanied by the installation of a big bow and tangle of hair brought back form Mexico.
