Things Fall Apart
February 3rd – 26th
“Things Fall Apart”, an exhibition of work by Tracy Hanna opens in SOMA on Thursday February 3rd. Reception will be held at 7:00pm.
For this exhibition the artist will present new installation work accompanied by drawing and photography. Underpinning her practice is an interest in perceptual phenomena and spatial experience. With a restrained and highly formal approach she explores the mutability and flexibility of environments and objects.
This project created for SOMA explores the idea of domestic space as an active, disordinate and emotional space. It is an interaction between the artist and objects fundamental to the home, the most basic, universal objects; a bed, a chair and a table. Through deconstruction and reconfiguration an unstable vision of domestic space is assembled by the artist. Her ideas and concerns are very much open; they reference positioning, orientation and attachment to space and time. Works begin to reference mental states, physical states and the emotions that are attached to them.
Tracy Hanna graduated from Fine Art in the DIT in 2007 with a first class honours. Since then she has exhibited in many group exhibitions, most recently in Holding Together at the Douglas Hyde gallery, Dublin. She also works collaboratively as part of the group Pallasades who have just presented a project entitled Score for 51°57’N 08°40’W at the the Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, in association with the Black Mariah. This is her second solo exhibition, the first being in 2009 at Broadstone XL, an offsite project with Four Gallery, Dublin. This year Tracy will also have a solo presentation of work at the Dock in Carrick-on-Shannon as part of their Dialogues in Sculpture series. The artist currently lives and works in Dublin.
