Hannah Valentine


Hannah Valentine is an artist based in Auckland, NZ. She works in sculpture, installation, film and performance. Hannah’s practice follows two distinct threads. The first is an interest in the body and tactile sensibilities. If we are being conditioned away from sensibility, towards consumerism, she questions how we might reinvigorate feeling and its importance in the way we interact with the world and each other. The second thread, which feels more pressing than ever, is concern for our environment and impending climate crises. Hannah’s work takes form primarily in object, installation and documentary style film.


Hannah holds a Master of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts (2017) and a conjoint Bachelor of Fine Arts and Arts (Hons), majoring in Italian from the University of Auckland (2011).
