"Stars & Scars", 2005, 3 lambda prints, 171x123 cm.

Peter Super-T-Art
In "S.O.S. Starfication Object Series" from 1975, did Hannah Wilke hire a photographer, to photograph her with small pieces of vagina formed chewing gums, placed on her head and body. In my series "Stars & Scars" from 2005 did I hire a photographer to photograph my nude body, covered in dark make-up and olive oil.

In Peter Super-T-Art, I work with the legacy of the American artist Hannah Wilke (1940-93) – a feminist showstopper of international stature. She represented herself as both object and subject, being a star and a scar at the same time. I scrutinised her works, selected certain pieces from her oeuvre, surveyed her gestures, reinvented them and moulded them into new territory – my aim being to subvert the phallic law from a man’s point of view. (Peter Brandt, The Penis Knocked Out, last paragraph, 2007).

Nikolaj – Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center showed “Intra-Venus” Hannah Wilke’s last work posthumously in 1995. In 1998 did they host the first retrospective exhibition in Europe of this important radical artist. Peter Brandt’s solo show “Peter Super-T-Art” was on show at Nikolaj – Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center from March 29 – May 28, 2007.

A catalogue in English was being published to accompany the exhibition. Essays by:

Joanna Frueh, Laura Cottingham, Peter Brandt, foreword by Elisabeth Delin Hansen.
