Hesh Products: working to make the world a more understanding place

These doorknob hangers are the first set that Linda Hesh created. They can be found occasionally on the street, at the Hirshhorn Museum Store or purchased through this site.


Desolation Doorknob Hangers

Linda Hesh has printed 8 statements of longing on doorknob hangers. She puts the hangers on doors in residential
commercial neighborhoods, photographs the installation, and then leaves them in place to be found.

The statements could be about problems in a love affair, feeling dissatisfied at work, longing for your neighborhood as it was, or even frustration with the government. This artwork is about any type of relationship that results in a broken trust.



If you found one of these doorknob hangers in your neighborhood, or would like to buy your own set of 8 (for $25), you can become part of this group of work. Create you own art by photographing your installation of the hangers and upload your pictures to the contributors online gallery.

Hesh also puts the 8 statements on mugs. These are done in 2 styles- as large type that shouts as it wraps around the mug and in small, quiet blue type. These are also for sale, to stack for your own installations, or to get a singular message to someone.
