Isolation and loss are recurring themes in Hanni Huang’s work. While photographing the landscape during her frequent travels in the back seat of a moving automobile, Huang is taken by the contrast between the blurriness of the foreground and the clear and solid edges of the background. She constructs paintings about loss and loneliness from a combination of this photographic information and memory. To address isolation and loss, an installation consists of performers interacting with each other’s hologram. Then, during a flight to China Huang uses her phone to frame the pandemic from her perspective. Her paintings, holographic installation, video and photographs are a diary of her experience. They all document the fear of losing that which is familiar and being left alone.
