A Tail of Hair

Aylin Kuryel & Firat Yucel, Turkey

'A Tail of Hair' chronicles the journey of a cluster of hair from a small, rural town in Uzbekistan, Central Asia, traveling through the Middle East, Turkey, and finding its new home in the ‘Holy Land’, Israel. In three locations and acts, we witness the travel of hair from the head of a Muslim woman to the head of a Jewish woman, its transformation from an organic part of a woman’s body in Tashkent to a commodity to buy and bargain for in İzmir and finally to a precious wig which belongs to another woman, an Orthodox Jewish woman, in Tel Aviv.
