Hannah Mevis is a visual artist and researcher.
Her process-oriented practice challenges her to act as an artist, performer, organizer, writer, chef, lecturer, teacher, student or whatever role is 

needed within the context. Central to her work is the curiosity for the human body in juxtaposition to itself along with its social constructs. Her work takes a variety of shapes which are influenced by context and concept, and incorporates her own sensory physicality as well as that of the viewer. Sometimes, the spectator can wear a sculpture; float in a blue space; participate in an action to the outcome of an artwork; taste foods while hearing about their stories; create images with their minds while reading the words that she wrote. Currently, Hannah is navigating
between states of exhaustion and the activity of catching cumulus.
