Hannah Collins is one of the pioneer artists in the use of the large format in the photographic discipline. She became known in the international scene during the early nineties.

The size of her works is often monumental, however the portrayed theme is often seemingly close to the spectator, incorporating a reflection around the fleetingness of present time and its survival through the memory of places.

From 2000, Hannah Collins began to introduce film and video often projected over multiple screens incorporating constructed musical soundtracks. She has maintained a performative element in her work and has expanded her interest in those people and places who inhabit the limit or margins of society and in the future of the human species. Her still images are often located between documentation and precise acted performance. Migration and modern attempts to improve our vision of the future have been subjects in recent works including The Fertile Forest (2015) a work made in the Colombian Amazon, I will make up a Song (2018) and The Earth Beneath My Feet (2022).

Parar la fresca

Fonteta
Jun 18 - Aug 03, 2021

We’re delighted to present a joint project by Bombon, Galeria Joan Prats and NoguerasBlanchard in Fonteta, a small village in the Empordà region from June to September.

The exhibition, conceived in two chapters (the first opening June 18th and the second August 7th) brings together artists from three different generations. The proposal begins with a concept from the Empordà Parar la fresca (to take in fresh air) described by Josep Pla in the book Las Horas (The Hours), 1953.
