Revival

Hannah’s practice often revolves around the idea of Nostalgia, Music and Fashion.
‘Revival’ explores our relationship with the past and how we as individuals relate to pop culture and
fashion trends of the latter part of the 20 th century- more specifically the 1960s and 70s.
The paintings and sculptures work together to create a visual mindmap of a time period playing on
the glam rock and psychedelic aesthetics with pop culture references hidden throughout.
The clay sculptures were made from memory exploring the way that these items have become so
ingrained in our society both as symbols of pop culture and as everyday objects symbolising a
lifestyle before the digitization of our society. This is coming from the point of view of someone
without a living memory of this time further highlighting how items such as records and cassette
tapes have become something of a novelty.
