Hannah Fitz

courtesy, Samuel Laurence Cunnane

Hannah Fitz works primarily with sculpture, making inexact versions of figures, furniture and familiar objects. Made in series and painted in a faded, near-monochromatic spectrum, her work reflects back a departicularised version of the world in which actions are disjointed, light and shadow have form, and gravity seems less in control. Her sculptures are carefully constructed, but rejects sleekness for a finish that is deliberately crude and scrappy, articulated by curling lines and uncertain wobbles. Human figures become uniform and featureless everymen, like the figurines on top of trophies, while clothing and household objects seem animated, teetering towards one another as if in communication, inhabiting a shared universe that omits us. There is a playfulness to her work, but also a sense of unease: these ambiguous sculptural forms appear suspended in time, acting more like photographs or drawings than sculpture.

 

Hannah Fitz lives and works in Berlin.
