Home of paradox

In her multidisciplinary work, Berlin based artist Hannah Hallermann links clear, essential forms to complex social issues. Her sculptures that she builds in her own studio evoke an intense relation between body and objects, as well as powerful dynamics between the often disparate materials. Myths and symbols seem to drift through time and transfigure into contemporary form and relevance.⁠⁠

In her multidisciplinary work, Berlin based artist Hannah Hallermann links clear, essential forms to complex social issues. Her sculptures that she builds in her own studio evoke an intense relation between body and objects, as well as powerful dynamics between the often disparate materials. Myths and symbols seem to drift through time and transfigure into contemporary form and relevance.⁠⁠

Hannah's sculptures act as tools for social transformation – embracing conflict and the paradox but refusing stagnation. The works may challenge the viewer’s imagination of how to relate to and how to use these tools, but also spark conversation about a reality of unequal opportunities. Hannah’s art supports ambiguity and a freer, less restricted kind of social interaction: more confusing, more chaotic, less reasonable, more dirty, more open, more vulnerable.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Her work is featured in the major presentation “Still Alive” at Albertinum, Dresden. She is part of the Sammlung Hoffmann and the SKD (Staatliche Kunstsammlung Dresden). Hallermann has recently been awarded with the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, Stiftung Kunstfonds and the Sonderstipendium des Landes Berlin.⁠⁠

What is it about your studio space that inspires you?

Combinations, often contradictory ones, are what inspire me the most. I believe in constant transformation and am afraid of anything static. So I work in two places: one studio is clean, warm and inside my home; the other is outside, self-built in a horse barn, dirty and surrounded by trees.

What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?

Metal in combination with loam. The materials I chose are powerful transmitters of movment and energy. Loam - one of our oldest building materials- is a time-capsule that visualizes transformation.

What themes do you pursue?

Social tipping points, Transformation, Gender Questions, Empathy, how to raise the bar

What advice has had the biggest impact on your career?

Focus with lasersharp energy then let it go
