Hedda Roman

Hedda Roman is a Düsseldorf-based artist mesh composed of Hedda Schattanik and Roman Szczesny. Interweaving cinematographic elements with surreal animation, literature, drama, sculpture, photography, and drawing, they create, among others, immersive video installations as well as computer-generated images. In their artistic practice, Hedda Roman aim to expand the traditional boundaries of art-making while reflecting on the perceptions, preconceptions, and contradictions that characterise our existence in the world. As observers attempt to understand the underlying logic behind the opulence of each of their works, what remains is the intensity of each individual moment that challenges human identity.
