Hannah Tharann is a visual artist with a focus on painting based in Berlin. Painting is a kind of schizophrenic process for her. This consists in a constant oscillation between clear, conscious decisions and unforeseen things, as well as the endurance of intuition.

These different components continually fertilize and displace each other on the canvas. The works she is developing during her residency at HOTO revolves around the search for identities beyond existing binary concepts. Her paintings and sculptures narrate stories of metamorphoses, transformations, and evolutions. The morphing bodies, composed of more than one subject, illustrate the escape from social norms that often trap identities and their bodies. Her work is inspired, among other things, by philosophical approaches found in the chapter "Becoming an Animal" from Deleuze and Guattari's "A Thousand Plateaus."

Hannah Tharann studies Fine Arts at Universität der Künste Berlin. First in the class of Burkhard Held; now in the class of Nadira Husain and Marina Naprushkina. She is scholarship recipient of the Dorothea Konwiarz Foundation 2023/24.
