Parade | Artwork | Community-led
Artists: Tao Chen, Hui Zhang, Yingying Gao
We collected discarded hair from different barbershops in Deptford to create a flag and a parade for this community. Our vision is to use discarded hair, representing a person’s history and story, as a medium to create new experiences and reflections where residents from different backgrounds in Deptford feel integrated with each other, a communal culture based on the recognition of different identities, belonging together.
Sat 23 Sep 2pm parade along Deptford High Street , to arrive at Deptford Lounge approx. 3.30pm.
Exhibition Opening Information:
Monday-Friday: 9am – 7pm
Saturday: 9am – 5pm
We would like to thank all the hairdressers on Deptford high street who gave us their support and the residents who took part in our activities.
