Hannah Heilmann in the studio

In the portfolio Night at the webshop, romantic dresses are humanized, with confrontations taking place between stick people and dresses, attacking each other – however sometimes they also seem more unified, working together to drag clothing racks like worker ants.

Working with master printer Mette Ulstrup, Heilmann has created a portfolio of five etchings that stem from the artist’s research-based practice. The prints encapsulate a perennial topic of the artist’s research – the cultural history of clothing and the desire-driven economy surrounding it.

Hannah Heilmann (b. 1978) has an MA in Art History and is Associate Professor at the Royal Danish Art Academy, Copenhagen. Heilmann works within a cross-media and performative practice. Her approach is mainly research-based.
