Join us for a lively conversation between Amartey Golding and Kevin Fortune to discuss the concept and process behind the intricate garment. The hand knotted garment made of human hair is displayed in the end gallery. It has been intricately designed by Amartey Golding in collaboration with the Shepperton Wig Company and hair artist Kevin Fortune using a pattern that blends references from Afro hair styles to the body art of ancient Britons. Using the hair of potentially thousands of people, each strand was hand knotted and tended to by a group of makers in the name of the collective healing.
