HEIDI HASSAN

Photography is the secret garden of Heidi Hassan, a highly regarded director and head operator. While her films come to grips with social realities, it is photography that allows her a more introspective artistic approach. Regularly featuring herself in her pictures, she has integrated a souvenir photograph of her and her mate in front of an Alpine landscape, partly concealed by a bas-relief made of wood, into a box in the manner of Joseph Cornell. Wires with eggshells strung on to them separate the couple in the photograph from the viewer. Down below there are piles of little notes with snatches of sentences written on them, such as "de spécial" (special), or "(t)(m)oi qui" (you/me who), or again "te rendre triste” (to make you sad). One of these notes has been slipped between the wires with the inscription "De locòsmico a lodoméstico" (From cosmic place to domestic place). *1978, lives and works in Geneva and Madrid
