Ben Harriott

Pop-up hair salon (ground floor)

Launch event: 26 September 2014, 6pm – 9pm

Ben Harriott is driven to explore and celebrate the cultural richness of minority communities in Britain, and to create a platform for their documentation and representation. Through the lens of his camera, he seeks to reveal the unseen and little-known.

For this research-based commission, Harriott has spent time in the West Indian barbershops of the Hyson Green and Radford Road areas of Nottingham. Looking beyond the service of cutting hair, Harriott will explore the alternative functions of the all-male, West Indian barbershop to reveal the complexity of these environments and to understand the role they play in shaping the lives of those that frequent them.
