|First Name and Last Name||
Hania Farrell is a visual artist whose practice sets out to challenge and expand the medium of photography by creating immersive, multimedia environments.
Interested in exploring the innate relatability within humankind and, more widely, within the natural realm, her work seeks to highlight structural commonalities while questioning issues of identity and belief systems
She constructs scenarios that, through physical experience, resonate with the deeper emotional level of being human, triggering a chain of reactions and transporting the audience to an uplifting status of innocence.
