Hannah Rickards

Her attention is particularly drawn to natural phenomena such as thunder, mirage and the aurora borealis. She closely examines these occurrences – and how we experience them – through moving image, sound and installation works.

Rickards’ scrupulous and investigative methodology involves the detailed deconstruction of her chosen subject. Breaking sounds or physiological occurrences down into minute parts for individual examination, her intense artistic gaze scrutinises each particle of information from a number of angles before reconstruction and eventual presentation.

Hannah Rickards lives and works in London. She was the recipient of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2008/9. A survey of her work was recently held at Modern Art Oxford, accompanied by a publication examining her practice. She has also presented solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery, The Showroom and Artspeak, Vancouver. Her work has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Witte de With, Rotterdam; the Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton and at the South London Gallery.

She has recently completed a year-long residency within Department of Earth Sciences at Cambridge University, and is just opened a solo exhibition at the Fogo Island Gallery, Fogo Island, Canada.
