Behold

fullsizerender-18Behold // Sheela Gowda // 2009

Behold, a work of art comprised of 4,000 kilometers of human hair and metal car bumpers. Titled Behold by Sheela Gowda, this work fills one room in Tate Modern. Inspired by the practice in India of tying hair on a car bumper to keep away bad luck, Gowda’s installation harks back to this tradition.
