Hannah QuinlivanRepresented Artist
Hannah Quinlivan’s vast body of work explores the unsettled and transient flow of memories and the inescapably connection between memory and the real. For Quinlivan, artworks are the embodiment of transient memories and mental conceptions, making something real and lasting from the fleeting and endlessly
pliable. Through making, memories take root and plant themselves in the real, bursting forth in the riparian zone between the mental and the material.
Quinlivan is in a number of collections including the National Gallery of Australia, The Australian High Commission (Singapore), Deakin University Art Collection, KPMG Art Collection, The Australian National University and The Molonglo Group.
She graduated from ANU School of Art in 2011 and was the recipient of an impressive number of awards including the Peter and Lena Karmel Award for the highest honours grade. Hannah has been awarded the Cox Prize for Sculpture at Sculpture on the Edge 2013. She is a current recipient of two Australia Council’s grants that have allowed her to undertake a series of mentorships and artist residencies in Berlin.
