Hannah Rickards: To Enable Me to Fix My Attention...

£14.99

Product description

Hannah Rickards’ meticulously researched and executed works explore the elusive landscape of perception and language. Her attention is particularly drawn to natural phenomena such as birdsong, thunder, mirage and the aurora borealis which she examines through spatial works that take the form of moving image and sound.

Rickards’ scrupulous and investigative methodology involves the detailed deconstruction of her chosen subject. Breaking sounds or physiological occurrences down into minute parts for individual examination, her intense artistic gaze scrutinises each particle of information from a number of angles before reconstruction and eventual presentation.

This absorbing and significant show will present an artist whose practice is resolutely and appropriately difficult to categorise. Rickards’ work develops at a glacial pace over many years of quiet and meticulous research and careful production to present a set of ideas that are simultaneously wide-reaching in their subject matter and highly intimate and microscopic in their detail.

This is a programme from her 2014 exhibition at Modern Art Oxford. In very good condition.
