According to renowned political theorist Hannah Arendt, art objects are unique. Their “durability is of a higher order than that which all things need in order to exist at all; [they] can attain permanence throughout the ages.” Hannah Quinlivan draws on this notion to make something present and lasting from memory, which by its nature is absent and fleeting. Through her practice, she is trying to come to terms with the fragile and ephemeral nature of memory - its defiantly constant mental presence despite an unremitting physical absence.
