Hannah Hughes & Dafna Talmor - Glossaries
Translation, hybridity and transposition are some of the ideas behind Glossaries, a duo exhibition by Hannah Hughes and Dafna Talmor.
Stemming from an ongoing dialogue based on shared interests around forms that shape their practice, the artists have taken the opportunity to develop new work individually and collaboratively in the form of a site-specific wall piece and an upcoming publication with Folium, including a commissioned text by Dr. Briony Carlin.
Hannah Hughes often uses discarded materials and overlooked forms as the starting point for her collages and ceramic assemblages. The collages on view in Glossaries originate from fragments of images of negative spaces, creating the impression of new volumetric forms through the interplay of light, shadow, tucks and folds.
Dafna Talmor extends the Constructed Landscapes series, an ongoing body of work that takes negatives from her personal archive as its starting point, to produce reconfigured and abstracted representations of landscape, consisting of three volumes to date.
