Sonya Clark

hair

Hairdressing is the first art made of fiber. The more elaborate the hairstyle, the more hat-life it becomes. These pieces play with fusion of hat and hairstyle. They reside in the grey area of wigs, hairstyles that seem to have taken over the hat, and hats that replace hairstyles.

“Clark affirms her affinity for … an aesthetic of improvisational materiality.”
