Description

Jer'Lisa Devezin's soft sculpture titled Beaucoup Shive / Madam C.J. Walker ain't got nothin' on me comprises millions of strands of discarded, found, and discounted synthetic and human hair in a towering monument to Black people and the residue they leave behind. From a distance, the sculpture suggests a black monolith and takes the form of graduated spheres stacked atop one another. Closer inspection reveals the incredible variety of textures and colors Devezin wove together to create Beaucoup Shive…'s rich and tactile surface, which not only appeals to the viewers' sense of touch but gives off a subtle and sentimental aroma evocative of Black barber shops or hair salons.
