Decommissioned by moths


Time to let something go. This time it is ‘Tonsure’, an artwork I made some years ago from the hair off my head. This piece consisted of my blowing a hollow ball of hair once around the cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral. After this, the documentation of the performance, along with the hair ball itself, was displayed in the cathedral treasury next to the polished silver and other artefacts. Looking back on it now, I still like this piece, so it is difficult to let it go. But, as I recently discovered, moths love hair, and Tonsure has a great hole in it, not to mention a mass of moth eggs as well! So time to let nature take its course. Good bye Tonsure…
