Hanging clothes up is something I’m fairly bad at remembering to do. I try things on and in my excitement for the next item, my grip automatically loosens and the piece of clothing drops to the floor as I reach for another. It’s a bad habit but perhaps I’d be more encouraged to tidily hang things if my garments could look as beautiful as Hanna Sandin’s suspended installations of everyday objects.
Like mobiles of simplicity there’s a quiet elegance to her work, enhanced by the neutral colours and subtle object choice that means the items fuse and work together as a whole. As well as this, the aesthetics of the objects blend in with their past functions creating an added weight to the pieces. The way they’ve been photographed is equally stunning as they almost look like flat line drawings on imaginary paper. Who knew that mop heads and bits of trellis could look so amazing?
