Hannah Walton


My work is about becoming, feeling, labor, and transgression. I work through material and gesture to explore these sculpturally. I am currently driven by my interest in embodiment, the politics of knowledge production, the moment where language meets material, and space. My work is site-responsive and draws on the materials and spaces I spend time in and move through. I also work in moving-image, text, and sound. I am in need of, and curious about, collective ways of being and working, and how art can be a practice for social and political beings. I think art should let you feel, and that it is fun, and also very hard.

I was born in Windhoek, Namibia, and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. My studies were in history and literature until I moved to London to do my MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art until 2019. I am currently based in London.
