curriculum vitae

Hannah Harkes works predominantly in the mediums of printmaking, installation and performance, using graphic imageries within spaces and events. Her practice is informed by sociological and emotional tendencies, particularly how these are expressed through human interactions. She is most influenced by situations in which sincerity meets absurdity. Instruments commonly used by the artist include printmaking presses, rural environments, animal behaviours, games, handicraft and the bass guitar.

Hannah Harkes has been exhibiting since 2008, predominantly in Estonia, but also in the UK, Finland, Sweden, Lithuania, Germany, Italy, the USA, Russia, and China. She increasingly works collaboratively, instigating multidisciplinary events and projects, alongside her solo work as an artist. Since 2012, Hannah has been based in Tallinn, Estonia, where she is the letterpress master at Labora workshops and a member of Grafodroom printmaking studio.
