Hannah Lees works intuitively with her materials, foregrounding process and the nature of the substances she works with. She creates shifts in context to disrupt interpretation and allow for new meaning. Her practice encompasses a wide range of mediums from painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, textiles, ceramics, internet art, performance, writing, sound and video, all of which she utilises to address themes of natural cycles, the inevitability of decay and the potential for regeneration.
Hannah Lees lives and works in Margate and London, UK. She completed a Post-Graduate Diploma at Chelsea College of Art (2011) and a Foundry Residency at the Royal College of Art (2012). Recent solo exhibitions include Smoke, Reading Rooms, Melbourne (2018), The Turning Of Existence Into Its Opposite, Kingsgate Project Space, London (2017), Turner Contemporary & the British Museum Commission: Hannah Lees, Turner Contemporary, Margate (2016).
