Charlie le Mindu is a Los Angeles-based visual artist who has pioneered the use of human hair, among other nontraditional materials, to blend the worlds of fashion, performance art and installation.
Le Mindu’s sculptures and performance compositions have been exhibited in numerous institutions including the Foundation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Palais de Tokyo and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Additional projects, including art direction of the storefront windows at Galeries Lafayette Paris and Bordeaux, reflect the regard of the fashion and art world for his dramatic, offbeat design aesthetic.
Le Mindu’s current movement toward time-based media transforms the contemporary art institution, presenting performances that exist in a space between the worlds of fashion and art.
Haute Coiffure, a hardcover catalogue of his work, was published by Roads Press in 2015 and may be purchased here.
