Just a Trim (ongoing)


I go into different hair salons and request ‘just a trim’.

I keep track of the length of time in the chair, the topics of conversation, cost, extras provided by the salon, etc.

I am interested in the fact that regardless of one’s connection to any city, one is placed in an intimate relationship with an individual who lives there when one goes to a beauty salon. For the length of the ‘trim’, a stranger is touching my hair and in direct physical contact with me.


I have had trims in Berlin, London, Toronto, Saskatoon, Belfast, Westport (Ireland), New York, Montreal, Dublin, Delisle (rural Saskatchewan), etc.


This is an ongoing project. It has not been exhibited anywhere publicly.
