Jim Shaw – Hairdo

Jim Shaw - Hairdo - 2012.

Jim Shaw - Hairdo - 2012."Hairdo" is produced especially by Jim Shaw for his exhibition The Rinse Cycle (9 November 2012 – 17 February 2013) at BALTIC, Gateshead, UK. The comic book image of a 1960s bouffant wig references a passage from Shaw’s proposed prog rock opera based on his fictional religion Oism, a narrative he has been working on for more than 20 years. The image also refers to the mural The Rinse Cycle 2012, included in the exhibition, in which a group of oversized bouffant hairdos hover around a desert landscape they share with the interior view of a washing machine in mid-cycle.
