The brainchild of Andrew Mandinach and Diana Li, Our Hair Out of Place is a collaborative project that looks at hair in all it's complexity. OHOOP is interested in examining hair as social identifier and cultural marker and seeks to challenge social assumptions about hair through video and performance art.
Often initiated by autobiographical situations, OHOOP projects explore how people perform gender and questions how hair – it’s shape, size, color, the ways its worn, the ways it’s cut, and the way it’s treated – plays a factor in that performance.
Andrew's first contribution to the project was a video series called Wining with Clarck Ross. Followed by his public performance, Like a Hair from Milk: A Mundane Jubilee (pictured).
