Textile artist Hanne G has pushed forward in every direction, from installation to wall applications. Her approach incorporates humoristic and sensual sensibilities. Reinventing the traditions of craft, especially crochet and embroidery, her works have explored the intersection between science and myth. Hanne G is known for a bespoke technique in which she effectively ‘freezes’ fabric and achieves ceramic-like qualities. Hanne G address tactility and the nature of perception.
Hanne G (born 1963) has a Masters of Arts in Architecture from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and she has been working as an artist for the last 10 years. She has participated in several international exhibitions. Lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Sleek Magazine no. 37, Spring 2013, the article “Craft: The revival”:
“The Danish artist and activist who goes by the name of Hanne G is best known for her provocative, boldly politicised pieces made out of crochet and knit. She picks up stereotypically male, aggressive symbols which she reproduces in the softest of wools. Her “Crochet for Peace” series of 2007 consisted of fuzzy gasmasks and rifles – suggesting spending the country’s defence budget on wool rather than guns. As for her “Lady Weapons”, they consist of archetypical domestic items associated with femininity, ranging from broomsticks to rolling pins and g-strings. Suddenly, these potentially violent objects seem more aggressive than their male counterparts. Mission accomplished.”
