Artist statement

Hannah Dawn Henderson’s practice meditates upon moments when the body’s capacity to articulate its presence finds itself inhibited by limitations, provoking experiences of mental dissociation. These limitations can exist as much beyond the body (imposed identities and social expectations) as within it (fatigue, illness, mutism). Through filmic and literary narration, Henderson situates these fragmentary episodes—whether they manifest as daydreams, grief, homesickness, or love—as being integral within, not absent from, the chronology and cartography of one’s corporeality. Trauma is thus understood as not only a ruptured site, but also as a liminal space in which new understandings can emerge. 

Previous presentations of Hannah Dawn’s work have included contexts such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam (NL), Haus N Athens (GR), Queer Arts Festival Antwerp (BE), Ambika P3 (London, UK), Archiraar (Brussels, BE), And What? Festival (London, UK) and the Experiments in Cinema Festival (Albuquerque, USA).
