I Did ItBelieve It or Not

In the videos of Heibach, the myth of the American dream is ironically de-familiarized. In Believe It or Not, Miss Piggy from The Muppet Show dances a waltz against the backdrop of skyscrapers, and in so doing becomes the digital embodiment of current images of capitalism. In I Did It, the artist and documentary filmmaker, becomes herself a woman that “makes it.” Heibach combines performance with video art to form a critical deconstruction of clichés.
