From the publisher:

Alegorías Capilares builds a journey through the aesthetic universe that unfolds human hair used as a material for art in the work of the Mexican artist Gabriel de la Mora. Through his vibrant prose, Rodríguez Blanco leads the reader from Walter Benjamin's concept of allegory to Jacques Lacan's category of the real, from Julia Kristeva's abjection to Mario Perniola's sex appeal of the inorganic. Hair is revealed as a sublimated artistic material, as a receptacle of repressed desires, but also as a catapult to sinister places of memory.
