Hannah Caprice - 'Animalgamations' (2018)

Currently featured in APW's Gertrude Street windows are the hand-made artist books by artist Hannah Caprice. At once playful as well as strikingly detailed and complex, Hannah's artist books interweave both the personal as well as cultural.

Hannah Caprice is a Melbourne based artist of Canadian-Australian background with Indo-Trinidadian and Slavic heritage. Her work delves into the intricacies of hybrid identity, belonging and the search for intimacy.

As a child of cross-cultural backgrounds, Hannah noticed a strange beauty in being an adaptable misfit: belonging everywhere and nowhere; feeling fragmented and whole all at once. This interest in the nuanced experiences of outliers, when channelled through her art practice – creates a focus on how emotional intimacy with others can mitigate feelings of alienation and enrich our own sense of self.

A selection of Hannah Caprice’s artist books are on view 24/7 in APW’s Gertrude Street facing windows until 24 June 2024.
