Description

I make things and I do things. Most of the things I make, fail. Most of things I do, don’t look like art. But they matter. To the world my practice might look strong and clear, successful even. Maybe it is. But you don’t need to hear that, and i don’t often care for talking about it, rather there are murky, quirky, messy and absurd ways that I behave in the world that is a truth about being an artist. I want to show you some of the specific habits, methods and tools that occupy my time. They are the fringe dwelling activities that allow me to be playful, curious, uninhibited and uncertain. They have been useful to me. They may be useful to you. - Hannah Bertram

TUTOR PROFILE

Hannah Bertram completed a PhD at VCA, University of Melbourne in 2018, and a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2003 and a Masters of Fine Art in 2005 at RMIT. The primary medium for her temporary decorative installations is dust, but her practice also includes site-responsive installations, drawing, video, performance and spoken word.

During her fifteen years as a professional visual artist, her works have been exhibited throughout Australia and Internationally. Her ephemeral installations have been displayed in ARI’s, commercial galleries, university galleries, public space, and contemporary art museums including most her site-specific work ‘Phoenix in Ruins’ at Palais de Tokyo, Paris. She has been awarded several prizes and in 2015 was shortlisted for the Prudential Eye Award for Best Emerging Installation Artists in Asia. Bertram has also participated in many artist-in-residencies programs, such as the Australia Council, Skills and Art Development - Green St studio New York.

In addition to her art career she is also an experienced teacher working in the Creative Arts degrees at Deakin University. Several of her artist-in-residence projects have included working with members of the community or students, to collaborate creatively on the development of new work.

In 2005 Hannah Bertram and fellow American artist Kendall Nordin created and completed the first 24 Hour Drawing Project. In subsequent years the event has included artists from Australia, USA and China and has taken place in several continents. It is a studio-based project that honours endurance, time and process.
