Hannah Villiger died in 1997 at the age of 45, she was among the most important Swiss female artists of her generation. Hannah Villiger was a sculptor, her works sculptures and her medium photography. At the beginning of the 1980's she began to explore her own body by means of a Polaroid camera. Villiger employs the camera and the resulting pictures as a third eye in order to gain - as if from the outside - a perception of herself and place the female body in a spatial, social, political and art-historical perspective.
