Hannah Sawtell: Osculator
Hannah Sawtell’s exhibition, Osculator, transforms the ICA Theatre into a space that positions the viewer between a large-scale video collage and a multi-panel acoustic receptor. All of the material used by Sawtell in the installation is sourced from the internet, with the intention of exploring the physical and virtual dimensions of surplus capital, pairing the seductive language of advertising with the new technologies of excess and access.
In conjunction with the exhibition at ICA, Hannah Sawtell also presents the sister exhibition Vendor at Bloomberg SPACE (5 October 2012 – 12 January 2013).
Hannah Sawtell has produced three broadsheet inserts in collaboration with John Morgan Studio, and distributed with Bloomberg Business Week magazine.
Hannah Sawtell was born in London in 1971. Sawtell has been included in group shows at Vilma Gold, London, International Project Space, Birmingham, Dependance, Brussels, and Limoncello, London. She most recently participated in a project for the Clocktower Residencies, New York. Her forthcoming solo shows include Vilma Gold, London and Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea. She lives and works in London.
