Hanna Sandin is a sculptor based in New York City. Her work incorporates a stripped down vocabulary of form and defamiliarized material language, amassed from the ebb and flow of everyday consumption.
She was an artist-in-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) Workspace program (2008-2009). Her first solo exhibition was through a fellowship from the A.I.R. Gallery, a non-profit founded in 1972 advocating for women. Her most recent solo exhibition was at Galerie Herve Bize in Nancy, France. She has exhibited in group shows at MOMA PS1, as well as galleries Nicelle Beauchene, Lisa Cooley, Churner and Churner, Mary Mary, Karma International, Leo Koenig Projekte, Cleopatra’s, Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve, and most recently S2 at Sotheby’s Auction House in New York.
She has worked with performance artist Nancy Garcia, producing sculptures for her work at the Kitchen in 2010. Hanna subsequently commissioned a dance piece from Nancy Garcia, for a presentation of the 2011 collection from her jewelry line, SAMMA, at Sculpture Center. In conjunction with an editioned sculpture for Sculpture Center, Transmission Object, Hanna worked with performance artist Megha Barnabas, activating the object through use at the NADA New York.
