Hanna Mattes

Hanna Mattes (b.1980, Munich, Germany), studied Fine Arts at Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and Linguistics at Freie Universität zu Berlin. With an interest in that which lies beyond optical capture – be this screen or lens, the filmic or the celestial – Hanna takes photographic processes as a point of departure. Through different modes of direction and documentation, her work expands fantasies, creating multiverses, where a viewer is led to question notions of ‘real’ and ‘fallacy.’ Surpassing ‘the photographic,’ Hanna’s recent work employs sound and her body to make explicit the tensions between these notions and there effect on psychosocial behaviour.
