Hanna Romin - Extended Arm Drawings (Octopus)

In dialogue with the eight armed octopus, an artwork is shown that moves between the borders of the animal and human kingdoms. During the period of this exhibition an ongoing event will occur in which an accumulation of drawn traces are left, partly camouflaging the octopus exhibition. Through regular observation and communication with this curious animal, and its spectacular external and internal characteristics, Romin wants to come closer and understand the animal as an individual. Through borrowed exterior attribute she enter the role as a hybrid between octopus and human, with an urge to find new ways to experiment with drawing as a medium.
