Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir - Museum of Design and Applied Art’s exhibition at DesignMarch 2011 Using human hair as a main source of inspiration, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, a.k.a. Shoplifter, has set her mark on the art world. More than just a dominant material, the symbolic world and meaning of hair are an integral aspect of her visual creation.
