For young children, both skin and hair belong to the daily discoveries around me and you. My arm is brown, and yours? I have blonde curls, and you?

A starry sky of freckles, a shiver with goosebumps, the crease of a laughing wrinkle… Once we get older, skin and hair really become a part of our identity. In heel-huids, the interior and exterior world merge effortlessly, resulting in a surprising performance full of strong images about identity.
