Hannah Whitlow – ‘How Are Things?’
‘I make Things. Which is a concrete yet ambiguous word. However you would know what I meant if I said ‘pass me that Thing by the chair’. It is a placeholder for when the word is on the tip of your tongue but you can’t quite reach it. It is simultaneously general and specific. The works aren’t one Thing or another, they are a recalling of an object from a distance, they are something but you cant be sure what, they are Things.
When you use the word Thing, it a loaded term that is both full and devoid of meaning, how can a word do both at the same time? How can it encompass everything but also mean nothing? The sculptures I make are the materialisation of the uncertainty of the word ‘Thing’.’
