Artist bio:

Fiona Bennett is known far beyond Berlin as a hat artist. Born in Brighton in 1966 and raised in Berlin, she opened her first studio in Berlin Mitte three years after the fall of the Wall. Today, her hat salon is part of the Potsdamer Strasse gallery scene, a sales and exhibition space for her creations, which have always had an inherent sculptural power. Surreal, profound and light at the same time.
Her hat object “Nosedive” was shown at the VON BARTHA gallery in Basel, was part of the 2016 exhibition “Surrealism & Beyond” at the Boljmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam and is currently on view at the Alexander Ochs gallery.
"Nosedive II", created in 2018, leaves the familiar terrain. The wall sculpture connects the mental work with the space and the space with the viewer. And in the reflection creates an image that has as many facets as the person who sees himself in it.
Fiona Bennett reinvents interiors, most recently the "Flush" in the Berlin Wintergarten Variete (with Hans-Joachim Böhme), devises costumes for theater and film, and as a successful entrepreneur is a member of the "International Women's Forum".
