Heide Hatry

I am a New York-based German artist best known for my body-related performances, for employing animal flesh and organs in what is typically viewed as rather conceptually-oriented work, for making memorial portraits out of the cremated remains of people and animals, for my large body of unique artist’s books, and for using all sorts of natural and “non-art” materials in the creation of my work.
In the projects Skin, (2006), Heads and Tales (2009), and Not a Rose (2012) I addressed moral, ethical, aesthetic, epistemological, ontological, and political issues raised by the human use and abuse of nature through bodies of sculptural and documentary work made from detritus of the animal-slaughter industry.
