A ‘hair’ themed solo booth of prints, drawings and photography work by LEBOHANG MOTAUNG Curated by BLAQUE INQ Contemporaries. This new solo exhibition uniquely presents a selected ‘hair’ themed work of prints, drawings and photography work by Lebohang Motaung, alongside a special experimental hair plaiting performance piece and behind the scenes short film documentation of Motaung’s collaborators, influences, inspirations and creative process. The show celebrates how hair has taken on many meanings in cultures across Africa and today – a fashion statement, a medium for beauty but also an object of loss, a symbol of pride, identity, time passing, and ultimately art. Since 2015, Motaung has been working as a hair artists and stylist and has collaborated with hair model, Vuyiso Tshabalala to create different hair looks, forms, styles, ideas and references for this project.
