Andrea Hannon is a contemporary artist based in South West London. Her work explores pre-existing ideas of gender and the home, and how these are perpetuated through language that is conditioned by binary categorisations of understanding (male/female, man/woman, feminine/masculine, subject/object).
Drawing from a range of historic and contemporary sources such as encyclopaedia, magazines, books, existing objects and materials, Andrea creates surreal two-dimensional and three-dimensional works that question existing knowledge structures that define us in various ways by our biological sex.
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN
Frida Kahlo was a prolific self-portraitist who used the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her vivid, turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided by the artist’s own words this personal and intimate film offers privileged and detailed access to her work, shining a light on the artistic talent so often over-looked in accounts of her dramatic life.
Featuring interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, Exhibition On Screen explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in Frida Kahlo’s paintings. We examine her omnipresent self-portraits but also her less well-known works resulting in a feast of vibrancy and colour on-screen. Deeply moving and sometimes shocking, Frida’s paintings will take us on an engaging journey of discovery into the mind of one the most enduring and arguably the world’s favourite female artist of the 20th century.
