A narrative connecting archives of mothers, daughters and a Russian childhood. The story of Alice Pitfield, encountered through a curl of her hair and a plait cut from her mother’s, found in the Royal Northern College of Music archives; building a new archive of hair-stories: images and narratives from women in Manchester Art Gallery in 2016. Alice’s curl and her mother’s plait, alongside the hair-stories of other women, offer us a different type of Manchester. Manchester-as-woman, mother, sister. Manchester as playful, tender, corporeal and vulnerable.
