Pelenakeke Brown: Reasoning On Paper: The Myth Of Herself
Mar 08-Mar 31
Exhibit presents drawings from Pelenakeke Browns documentation of growing out her hair. Pelenakeke describes her work as our hair holds personal narratives, so I began to document my own. They are self-portraits, but are universal due to their facelessness. The way we wear our hair says something about ourselves to the world. How we see ourselves, want others to see us and how they then read us. These drawings could be you or a version of yourself that you know. Pelenakeke is uncovering the masks that we wear through the personal narrative of our hair.
