Hannah Parr

Hannah Parr’s works are based on specific self-developed working processes. For years, she has been collecting and sorting materials, typically from domestic or manufactured sources. Her diverse output ranges from mosaic-like structures to large-scale augmented wood sculptures and objects referencing social realities and power dynamics. Parr rewrites the narrative of objects identified with a specific function, thereby harvesting the latent potential of commonplace objects by repurposing them as tools for critical analysis. The messages conveyed in Parr’s humorous and ironic manner usually have a double edge. The titles of works allude to dichotomies that illuminate cutting messages and comment upon condemning given normalities. The embedded irony strengthens the peculiar presence and harmony her works emanate.
