Dynamic oppositions inform the work of Stef Heidhues (b. Washington, D.C., 1975; lives and works in Berlin), which is inspired by the everyday world around her. And so the title of her first monograph, “Trespassers Only,” leads right into the issues the artist explores. Heidhues’s art is about boundaries and their transgression, about demarcations and the disregard for them, about attributions and their redistribution. The unconventional use of her various materials plays a central role: bicycle chains become flags; motorcyclists’ helmets are actually ceramic models; steel, driftwood, latex tape, fabric, and cardboard form fences, barriers, and barricades. Her works speak of our society, taking a stance against the overly quick categorization and valuation of what seem to be unequivocal matters of fact and articulating a plea for more empathy. With a preface by Reinhard Spieler, an introduction by Barbara J. Scheuermann, and an interview with the artist by Hans-Jörg Clement.
