Hannah toticki

 Hannah Toticki has a particular and personal visual language, which takes inspiration from fashion, design and theater. Her sculptures and installations often relate directly to the human body, taking shape as furniture, accessories or garments. Invested in potentially dry topics such as working life, economy, debt and agricultural policy, Toticki uses humor and distinct visual expressions to reach out, create conversations and reflections, often combining her physical works with performances and lectures. In recent works she investigates the connections between the global and the personal exhaustion, work life as a potential secular religion and what space is left for sleep, in a society striving for productivity.
