“Hanne Lippard has been using her voice as primary material for her sound installations and live performances since 2010. She appropriates and reenacts situations taken from the public sphere to interrogate a large range of subjects, including body politics, identity, standardization, and art ontologies. Her practice proposes a unique view on the media soundscape that surrounds us—one that prods us to listen more carefully.”
Balthazar Lovay, Mousse Magazine 69, 2019
Hanne Lippard, born in Milton Keynes, lives and works in Berlin. Her practice explores the voice as a medium. Lippard’s education in graphic design informs how language can be visually powerful; her texts are visual, rhythmic, and performative rather than purely informative. Her work is conveyed through a variety of disciplines, which include short films, sound pieces, installations and performance.
