Barbershop Quartet


In this video the network of people who facilitate Harris’s work as an artist are given haircuts by him and become the co-subjects of a portrait. They engage in art world dialogue whilst he creates an image for the people, who collect, represent, write about and collaborate with him. The dynamic of control within the art world is shifted in parallel with the hairdresser client relationship.
