Still (a) life

Still (a) life is a series of still lifes that is questioning the role of women in our society. Based on “typical female” stereotypes – women as housewives, mothers, or women as decoration etc. – the project shows a female body doing domestic work or together with objects that are related to one of those stereotypes. In most of the pictures only a part of the body appears – not the entire one. Sometimes it becomes unrecognizable at first glance, what generates disturbing pictures. By representing women in this way they get transformed into objects – into soulless and headless things. The viewer has to ask himself what am I looking at, what am I actually seeing.

Hannah Woolf aka Anne Hindennach currently lives in Barcelona. Her artistic practive includes graphic design, video, painting and drawing. She has had exhibitions in Spain, Sweden and Denmark.
