HANNAH LEVY

BORN 1991, New York
LIVES&WORKS New York, USA

Disturbing and alienating, Hanna Levy’s assemblages are made with objects condemned to exist according to the purpose for which man created them. By breaking this slavery into a sort of “design purgatory”, medical equipment, safety bars, gymnastic devices and handrails emancipate themselves from the human/object track. Levy removes the body from the ergonomic relationship with the object, replacing it with synthetic bodies made of polyurethane foam or rubber. On the one hand disturbing, Levy’s sculptures are nevertheless an ode to sensuality, to the excitement for beauty, to the erogenous potential of design in a future in which raw materials will be sensitive and intelligent enough to become fetishes.
