The talismanic qualities of the reused, the resourceful, and the strange come together in Hannah Cutts’ work to celebrate an inseparability of life and art. In a truly Duchampian twist on evaluating what is unique, finding is the creative act for her, and thus she amasses carefully chosen, commonplace objects to suggest a poesis of the many. As a photographer, she travels to third world cultures to document ordinary life: once arrived she contracts with artisanal craftspeople to produce handmade artworks, thus actively revisiting notions of the exchange of money for labour and how art is made.
