Pangea: Hannah Newman
January 23 - February 7Free
Carnation Contemporary is pleased to present Pangea, a solo show featuring recent work by Hannah Newman. Pangea releases a stream of potential energy from language and inanimate objects, sending resources and bodies into intersecting orbits. Rocks, minerals, research, digital technology, sound, and sculpture are mined for their poetic possibilities to create new supercontinents–clumps of information and materials that stick together. Consciousness moves between and within shared bodies to reimagine community and kinship on a planet where geologic time moves slow, but surface time moves fast. New, craggy landscapes emerge, powered by the hum of soft bodies and hardware.
Hannah Newman is an interdisciplinary artist reuniting digital technologies and experiences with their physical, emotional, and material sources. She has exhibited with galleries, institutions, and artist-run spaces across the U.S. and is a co-founder of the collective WAVE Contemporary. Based in Portland OR, Newman received a Master of Fine Arts from Oregon College of Art and Craft and a B.S in Ceramics and Fine Arts from Indiana Wesleyan University.
