Hannah Kemp-Welch has a socially engaged practice that is concerned with listening. Working with diverse constituencies to record conversations, stories and local histories, works emerge through the voices of participants, layered with environmental and imagined sounds. Hannah makes works for broadcast, installation and performance, using documentation such as zines to keep open possibilities for collective action and social change.
Hannah has worked with communities across the UK, and shown works in arts spaces including Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Nottingham Contemporary, Tate Modern, Barbican and Flat Time House. She has also exhibited internationally at FILE festival Brazil, Chinretsukan Gallery Tokyo and TENT Rotterdam. Hannah is currently working with the Women’s Art Library and Feminist Review as the 2021 recipient of the Art in the Archive bursary.
