Hanna Wildow, Hanna Wildow, born 1983, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. In her artistic practice, she explores the construction of history and histories; how materials such as voice, body and language can challenge which narratives that are approved of as knowledge. Her works, often rendered through collective processes and by participatory methods, can be read as performative attempts to unsettle dominating narratives; to challenge and to widen our horizons. Persistently, attempts are made to expose and blur borders between the listening and the speaking subject; between artist and viewer, between art and pedagogics, between politics and the private, between work and process, between image and word.
The practice is further influenced by Wildow's deep belief in the power of being together, of being in dialogue and of being in-between. With a desire for interspaces, breakages and gaps; she searches for warped spaces and errant narratives. Unfolding as performative inquiries; text, sound, printed matters, video and performances are brought together in spatial installations that convey unfamiliar experiences.
Hanna Wildow got her MFA from Konstfack University College of Arts Crafts and Design in 2015. Since then, her work has taken place in Stripa Gallerirum, Konstfrämjandet Bergslagen, Something Else Off Biennale in Cairo, The Grandmother Film Festival in Rotterdam, hangmenProjects in Stockholm, AHRA International Conference, Stockholm University of Dance and Circus, ccap Stockholm, ArkDes Stockholm, Participant Inc.
