Participating Artist Niamh Cunningham describes the making of her artwork for Intimate Transgressions.
I first met Niamh in Beijing in 2011 where she cut a striking figure with her golden hair. The following March 2012 she had completed a wonderful knitted 'Pillar of Time' which stood over 3m high and made a wonderful centrepiece for the exhibition I was curated in Siemens Art Space, 798.
For this exhibition Niamh has literally been pulling her hair out to produce an artwork of wonderful intricacy - a padlock made with hair. The short film she has made is a really eloquent narrative of her approach to making the work and the inspiration behind it.
