Adad Hannah has become known nationally and internationally through his creative work that combines photography, video, installation, and performance. These intertwined modes of expression have generated the still: a video showing a scene skillfully orchestrated by the artist in which the participant’s gestures are fixed without being totally immobile.
Time occupies a prominent place in Hannah’s work, forged by a lasting interest in temporality and its complex relationship with photography and video. This is supplemented by a constant desire to diversify the means of animating the fixed image, usually beginning with a filmed pose that is held momentarily by the protagonists’ vacillating bodies.
Hannah’s work is punctuated by notions of seriality, repetition, recovery, duplication, reflection, and visual citation. Although these ideas are recurrent in his work, Hannah avoids redundancy by creating images that are distinct in their content, though related formally and conceptually. This is why the order of the works presented in the gallery does not follow the chronological order of their production. Instead, it runs back and forth among the themes of his artistic practice: Mirroring the Museum, Reflections of Artworks, and Lives Captured.
Initiated and circulated by the Musée d'art de Joliette. Curated by Lynn Bannon and Anne-Marie St-Jean Aubre.
