Hannah Mai, winner of the textile prize

Textile techniques and analogue photography are the base of the (mixed media) works of  Hannah Mai (1986). She uses autobiographic experiences as a start of her work. De search and struggle towards mental balance is a repetitative theme.

Important in her work, sometimes even more important than the end results, is the work process. Hannah Mai works fully analogue and solely embroiders by hand. Slowness and meditative repetition are the central points in this process. The work process is always based on breaking down and rebuilding. Punching the needle through photographs or fabric symbolizes destruction, while the resulting embroideries are forming a new piece.

Therefore the works itself show melancholy and vulnerability, but with a raw edge.
