EXHIBITION: 13 + 14 DECEMBER 2019
As a visual artist, Heidi Hogden (USA) seeks to understand the relationship between place and identity through drawing. Her primary research interests include self-portraiture as it relates to location, the examination of place through the language of visual art, and the sampling from historical artworks, techniques, and subjects through a contemporary lens.
Hogden's solo exhibition „Anomaly“ pictures the journey of the artist in different and rather challenging terrains: the spaces depicted are as physically palpable as they are psychologically charged, reworking the motif of the artist as wanderer, adventurer and seeker placed at the very limits of what is endurable.
During her One Artist A Week residency in Athens, Heidi Hogden will explore how the self may be placed - or mis-placed - and conceived against an environment loaded with history such as Athens. These works are a kind of new realism that looks not just as how we encounter the world around us, but which depict the struggles that circumscribe the idea of habitation for this contemporary generation.
