About the Artwork

"Leap" is a large scale photo-based work on glass that conveys the mission of the PERFORM Centre. It depicts a series of human figures, reproduced in vivid colours, engaged in various physical activities. Fully two stories high, the work will be clearly visible from Sherbrooke Street but also from inside the building. Hannah's past work involves the transformation of historical paintings and sculptures into videos and photographs, questioning the conventions and codes of these media. This thread continues in "Leap", where the models for the work were actual members of the Concordia community - students, faculty and staff.
