Feature Artist from Current Group Exhibition

Eleanor Hanlon

NANA is proud to present Eleanor Hanlon a Newcastle based artist who formed part of the Out of the Woodwork Exhibition this April. Her two sculptural works : Buffer Zone and The Listeners were two highly tactile pieces that considered a temporal state of being and encouraged a reverent response from their audience.

Eleanor is a sculptor, jewellery maker and time-based artist who looks at collective narrative, colloquialism and story, and how these may construct rituals and patterns. Her artworks explore the absurd and harmonious nature of everyday happenings. She in interested in performative action, gesture and how the body interacts with objects and space.

She joined Renew Newcastle in 2013 and occupies a studio space in Suite 76, Hunter Street Mall.

 Out of the Woodwork is in its last week of exhibition at NANA. You can view Eleanor's works and many others this Friday 10am - 8pm and Saturday 10am - 4pm
