Take a journey through contemporary womanhood with Bermudan artist Louisa Bermingham, whose unique artwork – created using her own hair – is presented here to tell a restrained, powerful story of beauty, self-esteem, responsibility, acceptance, conformity, loneliness and (eventually) happiness; facing up to and overcoming life’s hairier, scarier moments.
