Continuous Monument

Sürerli Anıt


Human hair (the artist’s own hair), ceramic sink, dimensions variable


I have started building this monument in 2002 by recollecting my lost hair and plan to continue for the rest of my life. I carefully roll and shape the fallen clusters like beads which I then string on fishing line.  As a recorded history of my body through time, this monument will grow, change and strengten every time it is exhibited.
