Before Take-Off

Artist statement

Shaving Corner

One of the outcomes of the pandemic was the closure of barber shops, which drove many of the youth to take matters into their own hands. The results varied from success to failure to catastrophic failure. In this artwork, the artist embodies a luxurious contemporary barber’s corner to take us back to the very first days of the pandemic. Visitors will be able to recall that period of their lives, but in a novel and artistic manner, to relive the experience without the pandemic.
