Hannah Toticki Anbert (DK)

Hannah Toticki Anbert often uses the powerful visual codes of fashion and theatre; combining thought-provoking yet humorous sculptures and installations with performance, lecture, text, video and music. Anbert uses her artistic production to offer us a critical view on society and habits, dealing with issues such as our never-ending online presence, our work/life balance and our unsustainable exploitation of the natural world.
