Hanga’s work is installation-based, sight-specific and interactive. What remains the same throughout is the aesthetic of her images: themes of movement, light, shadow and surface often appear as abstractions of a particular space she enters. She hopes viewers might find their own separate, personal recognition in her isolated forms.
In August 2O15 Hanga created a ‘portable darkroom’ (kept in a suitcase and inspired by Projet VALISE) during an artist residency in Morocco. This portable darkroom enables Hanga to create and produce work from start to finish on-site.
The aesthetic of her images is influenced by her background in theatre and film in Vienna and Paris. Early in her career Hanga found the camera to be a viable and direct means to personally transcribe the eternity or continuity she found within the everyday of her immediate surroundings.
Hanga attended the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and École Internationale de Théatre Jacques Lecoq, Paris. She has been part of the collaborative project VALISE since 2O13.
