Your Hair Is Mine continues Michael Krumenacker’s investigation of the ways in which visual culture—design, architecture and art—creates and reinforces structures of power and class. At testsite, Krumenacker replaces and augments the existing furniture with functional and non-functional sculptures built from scavenged and readily available materials. Krumenacker’s long-time interest in architectural maquettes and landscape painting is apparent in this work; through these references, the artist explores the relationships between real and imagined spaces—relationships that depend upon the viewer’s participation in the process of seeing and projecting into a hypothetical world.
Michael Krumenacker received his B.A. in painting from Vermont's Castleton State College in 1994 and an M.F.A. in sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2000.
