The Silk Scarf 'Haircut' Ai Weiwei
Ai Weiwei's Haircut scarf is a true work of art that can be used as a personal accessory, or framed in any noble space to be contemplated.
Inspired by his participation in the documentary 12, held in Kassel in 2007, when he arranged for 1001 Chinese compatriots to travel to the German city, many of them for the first time.
Haircut is a scarf with a predominance of blue and white colors. Made with a particularly fine texture as it is made from a Chinese twill known for its high quality. It is hand-screened and finished on the hand-rolled edges.
The scarf is part of a portfolio called Papercut created by Ai Weiwei and published by Taschen 2019. It is inspired by the colorful pieces of paper cut, which are often used to tell stories during holidays and prayers, and as everyday decoration, a tradition that has 2000 years of history.
Ai Weiwei's edition for Taschen 2019.
