It is with great pleasure to announce the follow up to Hanne Lippard’s Nuances of No (2013) with a new collection of work by the artist. Entitled This Embodiment, this collection consists of work stemming from exhibitions and performances by Lippard over the past number of years. Including texts from her most recent exhibition entitled ‘Flesh’, at Berlin’s KW, that saw the artist use ‘her body and words to counterfeit perimeters given by established standards in art production and create a universe where the audience is physically as well as mentally brought outside of their confinements.’
The works collected display the various areas to which Lippard has directed her attention, from the worlds of work and the economy and supposed self improvement techniques, to food consumption and the roles played by advertising and language in our relation to both our relationship and estrangement from our bodies.
Hanne Lippard, born in 1984 in Milton Keynes, GB, lives and works in Berlin. Lippard’s practice explores the voice as a medium. Her education in graphic design informs how language can be visually powerful; her texts are visual, rhythmic, and performative rather than purely informative, and her work is conveyed through a variety of disciplines, which include short films, sound pieces, installations and performance. She is the recipient of the ars viva prize 2016, awarded by the Association of Arts and Culture of the Germany Economy at the Federation of German Industries. She has performed and exhibited at ars viva 2016; Index— The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm (2016); AUTOOFICE, *KURATOR, Rapperswil, CH (2016); Fluidity, Kunstverein, Hamburg, DE (2016); Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig, DE (2016); 6th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Moscow (2015); The Future of Memory, Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2015); Transmediale, Berlin (2015); Bielefelder Kunstverein, Bielefeld, DE (2015); Unge Kunstneres Samfund, Oslo (2014); Berliner Festspiele, Berlin (2013); Poesía en Voz, Mexiko-City (2012).
