Hannah Quinlivan


Hannah Quinlivan's practice is concerned with materializing structures of feeling. Her work explores processes of remembering and forgetting, and attempts to understand how affect holds together and functions. Developing a method she terms 'spatial drawing' after Monika Grzymala, she interrogates how our individual, internal processes of feeling and remembering are related to broader social moods or atmospheres. Quinlivan is currently pursuing doctoral research at The Australian National University and will be a visiting artist at Colorado State University in 2017. She has exhibited in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, United Kingdom and Germany. She is represented by Flinders Lane Gallery, Melbourne, and .M Contemporary, Sydney.
