Who is The Monster Installation

With Who Is The Monster? Hanne embarked on a truly international adventure, inaugurating an installation in Paris that was soon followed by equally successful shows and performances in Copenhagen and New York. It included mixed-media paintings on unstretched canvases and burlap potato sacks, masks of handmade paper, sculptures of papier-mâché and chicken wire, and ink drawings on rice paper created by pouring ink directly from the bottle.

In this provocative installation, visitors were immediately confronted with the “Big Black Monster” in the form of Blackie, a phantom hybrid creature, half wolf, half Labrador. It was an encounter meant to tease the subconscious and seed the question that reverberated throughout an exhibit intended to trigger reactions and elicit answers which guests were then invited to write in the guestbook.

In Copenhagen, Hanne performed by painting monsters on the T-shirts of visitors, and in the East Village show, fifteen poets were invited to let the installation inspire their poetry and then encouraged to read it out loud at the exhibit closing, during which a dancer performed a monster dance.

While in Copenhagen Hanne also onionized the Round Tower and after doing so placed her last leftover onions in the stomach of the chicken-wire wolf sculpture installed outside the gallery (later moved inside the gallery).
