Manipulated by the artist’s hands and previous unknowns, the materials exist between a state of making and being made. Assembled together they become artifacts of the blurred differentiation between human and natural actions.
Raised on the beaches of Cortes Island, Hannah Petkau is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Calgary, Alberta, where she completed her BFA with Distinction at the Alberta College of Art + Design in 2015. Her practice negotiates the interplay between humanity and what is thought to be nature, existing in an intermediate space.
