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 Latvian and an

Ashkenazi Jew, a cross-cultural

mixing that informs her post-identity

politics.

 

By assuming an 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

VS top-down storytelling and

champions informal and transient

communities both IRL and on the

WWW.

 

She recently completed her MFA at

Carnegie Mellon University.
