Re-Tale

Made from found synthetic hair extensions on the beaches of Port Elizabeth in South Africa, this work is sewn together by hand into a long pony tail from ceiling to floor. The title is both an association to the tails of hair, retail as a method of finding and recycling material, and a re-telling of tales as in fairy tales regarding long hair.
