Presence and Absence
Hannah’s work explores the reasons why objects which display the marks of use and age have a particular resonance for many of us. In particular she examines the themes of collecting, curating and preservation, the impermanence of all matter, and the concept of becoming. As all matter is constantly in the state of becoming something else, old and used objects hold the narrative of that process. As individuals we are able to add to that narrative, and therefore we have a need to interact with those objects.
