Long, shiny hair can be very appealing in its place – yet hair becomes repulsive as soon as it is detached from the head."Zulf" (Brunette) is one of a series of bizarre, humorous and consistently clever works on show at NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, currently hosting international artists' collective Slavs and Tatars' latest solo show, "Mirrors for Princes: Both Sides of the Tongue".Beyond, the gallery opens up into a spacious, well-lit room.In each section, two languages are spoken at the same time, overlapping one another at the same volume, creating a war of words – a battle of tongues.The text itself frequently mentions the tongue and the heart, which are described as the two organs necessary in order to speak the truth.The brown resin piece takes the form of a long, slightly curled tongue protruding from a human heart, complete with severed arteries.A series of angular glass shapes mounted on a curved branch and placed in a corner halfway up the gallery's carpeted walls, the piece's power lies in the fact that each shape doubles as a comb.
