Every street of my neighborhood, the Mission District, has a beauty salon. Because the concept of beauty is something cultural, the immigrant that comes from outside feels the impulse to create or reinvent places where to capture this concept of beauty. In this case the Beauty Salon is a space where people from the same cultural background can interact with each other.
Inspired by this beauty salons, I created Y Yo con estos Pelos, a multimedia installation of photographs, sculpture and works on paper. The photographs are self-portraits where I recreated the image of different women gossiping and sharing secrets while I get my hair done.
