“Hairy MPs” is a project by artists’ collective Mongrel to increase
hair growth for the UK Members of Parliament. The heads of the
political elite are seeded with extra follicles, numerically based on
their parliamentary attendance records. We look forward to profound
changes in our political representatives as new hair emerges. Mongrel
guarantees that the sight of your favourite UK Members of Parliament
luxuriating in their new furry countenances will renew your faith in
the democratic process.
This unusual method of political visualisation continues Mongrel’s
research to find ways to bridge the gap between the perception of
information and social experience, reconnecting it within a framework
of interest and accountability.
