About Heide Hatry

Neo-conceptualist artist Heide Hatry’s rigorous, corporeal work confronts issues of body politics, gender roles, and identity. Drawing on the conceptual language of feminist and Pictures Generation artists like Carolee Schneemann and Cindy Sherman, Hatry’s performances, sculptures, and photographs have employed socially charged materials as wide-ranging as skin, taxidermy, masks, and her own body. In her best-known series, “Not a Rose,” Hatry presents lush images of what look like tropical flowers. Upon closer examination, the flowers are in fact made of animal organs, addressing dual themes of beauty and repulsion, terror and desire.

German, b. 1965
