Nekü: Hair is Apolitical #14
Editions 4/5 + 1 Artist Proof Nekü: Hair is Apolitical #14 comes from a larger series of hair portraits titled Nekü. The artist imagines Black Hair beyond the political, but more for its bodily functionality, its beauty, transformative nature and sculptural value, and ability to defy gravity. Nekü is a Mende word that symbolizes God's model of beauty. It is the newly blossomed plant or meadow.
