About the object
Friedemann Hahn often has recourse to photographs or stills from famous films as templates for his paintings. He is particularly interested in love scenes from the history of film. »Heat« is the final part of the commercial/underground trilogy by the American Pop Art artist, Andy Warhol, in which he cynically and ruthlessly broke taboos. In »Heat«, an aging actress - her best days well behind her - uses the youth and virility of a former child star to rid herself of the reality of her situation: an aging has-been.
