Heads and Tails chronicles the curious hair trade between Turkey and Israel. Two Turkish-Israeli women, Coya and Sima, get the tails of hair from male hair traders from Turkey and sell them to wig makers in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, and Bnei Brak. Orthodox Jewish women cover their heads with the wigs made of the hair which once belonged to women from Anatolia. In this journey, the hair is turned into a commodity, a means of living and source of beauty, becomes kosher, yet doesn’t pay much to its owner, the one who carefully grows the hair.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
