I was living in Berlin and had a messy break up with the guy I was seeing. I went for the requisite break up hair cut and half way through decided to keep the hair. Being Berlin, the hairdresser didn’t even blink and let me keep my chopped off hair. A few months later I went to Art Basel and saw an artwork which inspired me to use the hair to write out the word HURT. It was only after I made the work that I realized that when you flip it over it almost says TRUTH.
