In her performance piece The Ugly Duckling, Hanne used a large painted storyboard mural and a small menagerie of animal sculptures as props to illuminate the classic Danish fairy-tale, accompanied by a friend sitting in as Hans Christian Anderson reading the story to a child. The innovative use of materials such as chicken wire and paper clay was evidence of Hanne’s evolving experimentation with unusual and, in particular, reclaimed, recycled and reusable resources in an effort to breathe new life into dead, discarded matter and resurrect derelict objects from society’s trash heap.
