A conglomerate of internal contradictions and absurdities — these characteristics of human condition are what fascinate and drive Hannah Joka in her three-dimensional work.
Through observations she exposes uncomfortable features in human thinking and behavior often camouflaged because of their deeply irrational qualities and internal conflicts resulting from it.
Joka translates such conflicts into a visual language that might appear delicate and smooth at first, but soon bare friction once the different layers of shape, materiality and their connotation are unfolded to interfere with each other.
