When feeling an old intimacy with new friends-Photo during performing Her/ interactive performance
It is very common in people’s life, everyday movements to create their own history through centuries. We are interested in researching hair/hair brushing now only as a physiological phenomenon, but also as a social one.
Hair is an object of intense elaboration and preoccupation in almost all societies. Hair is so simple but it is so fundamental. In the old times the dressing of women’s hair was only acceptable if performed by other women and in a bedroom. From the other side man to touch them in a public place was unthinkable.
Through this interactive performance we would like to challenge the intimacy of the viewers and of ourselves but letting people participate in this act of hair brushing as viewers and even let them get involved by touching our hair creating a more complex situation of viewers watching viewers doing something on us and as a result creating different feeling and experiences for everybody depending the level of their engagement. A question to be researched “ How nowadays brushing someone else’s hair can inspire a sense of breathless intimacy?” •
