(Event) Haircuts As Performance Art

Actual Size LA presents a unique participatory happening.

Working with two big (but perhaps unlikely paired) summer pastimes, Actual Size LA will present a performance of buzz cuts and Popsicle eating. Part social art and part process work, the viewer’s hair will become the material base for a sculptural work. The project has the potential to lead to a meditation on human waste; however, the act of cutting people’s hair builds on a set of power relations that allow artist and audience to forge a more intimate relationship as he/she manipulates the image of the viewer.
