Hannah Rowan (b.1990) lives and works in London, UK. is an artist who makes sculptural works that meditate on the relationship between the slow geological time of natural processes and the fast paced, technology-driven frenetic activity of humans. She utilises both synthetic and organic materials in her ephemeral, multifaceted constructions. She recently completed her Masters in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London. She has attended residencies at The Banff Centre, Canada (2015, 2018), The Vermont Studio Centre (2016), VT and The Wassaic Project, NY (2016). Her work is informed by inter-disciplinary collaboration and research in remote environments, such as The Atacama Desert, Chile and in June 2019 she will be joining the Arctic Circle: Arts and Science Expedition.
Recent exhibitions include Bodies of Water; Age of Fluidity (solo), White Crypt, London 2018; Oikos Logos, Enclave Lab, London, 2018; RUST: Art licks Weekend Peripheries, the Icing Room, London, 2018; Wild Within, Guest Projects, London, 2018; SHOW RCA, Royal College of Art, London, 2018 Plane of Immanence, Safehouse Gallery, London, 2018, Too Much Information, Seventeen Gallery, London, UK; Critical Cartographies, Filet, London, 2018; The Roger Ailes Memorial Show: Fair and Balanced, Yours Mine and Ours Gallery, NY, USA, 2017
