Hannah Doucet is a photo-based artist from Winnipeg, Canada. Through photographs, video and sculpture, she focuses on issues of representation, materiality and failure inherent in the medium of photography. Within the context of trauma extending from an experience of childhood illness, she is currently interested in considering anxiety over representation as an extension of anxiety over the real body, and a perceived lack of control in both contexts. In an attempt to reconstruct her own body in three-dimensional form, she works with fabric images, cutting, placing and stitching my own form. Through this process of reconstruction, she wrestles with concepts of agency and anxiety within photographic representations of the body.
Hannah has received her BFA Honours from the University of Manitoba in 2015. Her work has been exhibited in alternative spaces and artist-run centers throughout the city of Winnipeg. She has exhibited nationally, at Art Mur (Montreal) and Avenue (Vancouver), Proof 23 at Gallery 44 (Toronto) and, most notably a solo exhibition I Never Recognized Her Except in Fragments at The New Gallery (Calgary) in 2016. In 2017, she completed a month long residency as part the Banff Centre for Art and Creativitys Visual + Digital Emerging BAiR Program. She is the co-founder and an active committee member of Flux Gallery, a gallery space for emerging artists. She facilitates art workshops throughout the city of Winnipeg, working with children and youth through Art City, with pediatric cancer patients through Cancercare Manitobas volunteer department, as well as with senior residents through the Misericordia Health Centers recreation department.
