The film was shown as part of the exhibition 'Beauty Shop' at the 198 Gallery, London 2008 and looks at local
aspects of mainstream culture that sometimes get overlooked as trivial,but which serve a secondary and sometimes great purpose within localcommunities.
"The Beauty Shop exhibition will bring the performative qualities of High Street cosmetic consumer culture to the gallery space, as a mean to interact with visitors. The Beauty Shop will also explore the influences which shape our understanding of “beauty” and the representation of “self” by opening the lid on the personal and collective experience of hair, colour and the body. It will encourage visitors to engage with the multi- layered desires, practices, representations and ideologies mediated by the matrix of family, gender, sexuality, social status, education and cultural politics."
