I visited the Tate Modern for inspiration on my visual promotion project. These 2 exhibitions are my favourites as they are both visually intriguing and don’t give much information from first glances. The image on the left was created by Sheela Gowda and was made from car bumpers and human hair. She was inspired by the humble talismans of human hair that are knotted around car part to fend off bad luck. The hair originated from local temples where they cut it off as a offering when pilgrims fulfilled their sacred vows.
The image on the right was created by Magdalena Abakanowicz. Sh wanted to reflect her fascination with biological systems, organic matter and regeneration.
