‘I wish my hair was as long as yours’ is an evolving sculptural installation exploring longing, desire and female identity, incorporating the found netting and family textiles. This work also takes inspiration from a particular historical Indian miniature painting, entitled ‘Krishna and the cowgirls’ clothes’. It shows some women with long hair bathing in a lily pond, they all have long hair dripping wet, and are comparing the length of each other’s hair, before they realize that Lord Krishna has stolen all their clothes which he has hung neatly on a branch overlooking the pond. The textiles at the top of the unraveled netting are a reference to the clothes of these bathers, hence incorporating this particular aspect of the story.
