Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir

Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir (b. 1969) crosses boundaries between visual art, fashion, and performance, but her trademark is her medium: hair, both artificial and real. She creates works of fancy and fantasy, whether in the form of intricately woven wigs used in performance or installation, wall hangings evoking the extravagance of the Baroque, or murals of computer-generated patterns of densely arranged braids. Hrafnhildur frequently collaborates with musicians and other visual artists; recent collaborations include an installation with composer Nico Muhly, as well as a window installation at MoMA composed of swirling masses of colorful artificial hair highlighted by neon lights.
