Objects being the embodiment of memories are the focus of Hannah Davison’s work. The assembling, and disassembling of artworks denotes a child-like inquisitiveness that is central to understanding how her sculptures operate for the viewer. Hannah challenges the mundane appearance of everyday objects by incorporating a narrative that links to the notions of childhood memories. In this way the objects tell a story reflecting on their past, within the context of the viewers own personal history. The artworks intention is to probe the gaps between the actual history of the object, and the interpretation of the same objects from the perspective of the viewers’ own history.
