Abby Bagby: Kingdom

  • Women & Their Work 1710 Lavaca Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

In Abby Bagby's latest collection of "hair sculptures", she unravels and explores human psychology through the manipulation of human hair within the context of assemblage. In this exhibition, Bagby clothes the human body in order to question societal and personal understandings of feminism, ambition, and beauty through the lens of women's fashion. Touching on inspiration from surrealism, Bagby's work is sure to entice curiosity. 

The abject and slightly sinister use of human hair as the preferred material - and its imitation of fibers and fabrics often seen in today's notable fashion houses - attempts to reveal the intricacy and complexity of being human through disassociation, appropriation, and camouflage. Oscillating between the obscure and the functional, viewers will enjoy getting lost in Bagby's unique Kingdom.
