Hedda Schattanik (b. 1992 in Westerstede) and Roman Szczesny (b. 1987 in Bensberg) interweave cinematographic elements with surreal animation, literature, drama, sculpture, photography and drawing in video installations. Both artists graduated from the Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie and have been working together since 2014. They live and work in Düsseldorf.
Their main artistic practice expands the traditional boundaries of art-making, while reflecting the perceptions, preconceptions and contradictions which characterize our existence in the world. A dreamlike narrative seems to be the backdrop of each of their art works. While the observer tries to understand the logic behind the opulence of each image, all that remains is the intensity of each individual moment that questions the human identity.
