Hannah Hoebeke

Absence: Curtain

In her series ‘Absence’ Hannah searches for presence in absence. She portrays garments and objects from daily life, as artefacts. The human body gets liveliness from its round forms. Nothing about a human body is hollow. The collapsed contours of a garment, left without a second thought, are the imprint of that liveliness. Casings of life passed. A symbol for death. This work is made of clay, a material that brings out the subjectivity of the maker by emphasising her touch.
