Show RCA work

Major project:


Recalcitrance (Equal Volume II) and Sleeper  – In ideas and material: Recalcitrant, exactly where it is. Sleeper, being there. Asleep we are unknown, even to ourselves. The radical capacity of embodiment and interiority to live elsewhere to established methods of knowing. Finding ways of working with a material so that it is an end in itself rather than a means to an end I have already decided. Questions of flow, also: the generic supplies that come easily delivered, apparently unattached from the specifics and consequences of their production.

Generation – Parsing the habits of space and interactions in domesticity, race, gender and age, and the bodies within all of it.

Fly&Lizard – A collaborative work with Jakob Rava and Katharina Siegel looking at the experience of a marketing suite as a place of strange textures and a realm of ambiguous performance. In here, we follow a fly and a lizard as they move through the endlessly done-up rooms.


  • Hannah Walton has a multidisciplinary practice incorporating moving image, sculpture, installation and collaboration. Currently, at both the material and conceptual level, her work explores knowledge production and embodiment.
