Compassionate Attention (After Yvonne Rainer)

Hannah Leighton Boyce, single channel video 2022.

Hannah Leighton Boyce is a visual artist working across sculpture, film, drawing and installation. Her practice explores material, environmental and sensory relations, and the politics of labour, often through invisible processes such as energy transmission, the passage of time, cumulative and reductive forces. Liminality and the in-between are central positions from which she seeks a language and ways to express ideas of presence and absence, the material and immaterial.

Her recent exhibitions have included Articulations (2022), The National Festival of Making – a solo presentation of work developed through an Art in Manufacturing residency at Darwen Terrracotta & faience in Blackburn; Hospitalfield Residency (2021); The Position of the Sun in the Sky, White Columns online (2021), Personal Structures, PAPER Pavilion, Palazzo Mora, Venice Biennale (2019); Each Toward the Other, Bury Sculpture Centre (2019); Major Conversations, Platform A Gallery (2019) touring to the Turnpike Gallery (2019); Ruth Barker & Hannah Leighton-Boyce, Castlefield Gallery (2018) touring to Glasgow Women’s Library (2019).
