Like the neat, but ultimately overly-simplistic models that troubled her during her early studies in economics, the cultural norms that we use to define and structure our daily existence bother Elizabeth Hansen. Whether she is considering gender roles, the institution of marriage, the problematics of ownership, ideas of heaven, or the use of algorithms on social media, Hansen brings an irreverent regard to the subject. Through a playful approach, her aim is to provoke serious evaluation of the status quo.
Her work is multi-disciplinary incorporating performance, installation, video, sculpture, and photography. It has been exhibited in New York, Belgium, and France and is in private collections in Belgium, France, Italy, and the United States.
Hansen is participating in Selects-@-CREATE, an exhibition curated by Daniel Aycock and Kathleen Vance. This exhibit is presented by Open Source Gallery in collaboration with CREATE. Selects-@-CREATE opens on November 20, 2021 and is on view in Catskill, NY through January 16, 2022
