ARTIST STATEMENT

Hannah Epstein (AKA hanski) is a

neo-folk artist working in the cross-

section of textiles, experimental

games and video art.

 

Raised in Nova Scotia, Epstein is

the daughter of a cross-cultural

mixing of Latvian and Ashkenazi

Jewish ancestry.

 

With an unassuming outsider's

perspective, her work exists along

the fringes of cultural

practice, blurring the lines

between traditional craft, popular

culture, and contemporary art.

 

With a background in

folklore, Epstein's work calls to

investigate the role of bottom-up

and top-down storytelling and its

reality shaping role in current

dialogues which separate "fake

news" from "real news" 

 

She recently completed her MFA at

Carnegie Mellon University.
