Hannah Rickards

Lives and works in London

Hannah Rickards work deals with perception and its description; with how one can translate an encounter - be that with a sound, an object, a space or an image. It is centered on the framing of description in language, gesture and sound. To date, in particular, Rickards has explored the relationship between atmospheric phenomena and experience of them (a sound heard accompanying the aurora borealis, a remembered image of a mirage, a thunderclap re-performed by a musical ensemble) in installation, video, text and sound works.

The sound I think it makes is, is that whispering sound, to me it sounds, it almost sounds, um, uh, what's the word I'm thinking? Um, like historic, not historic, but, um, oh: a legend, it, it sounds like a legend, you know, when you think of a legend or something way back in the past you get that, that, it sounds like that to me, like this legend or somebody's, this whispering sound: it's a legend.
